Apple Walnut & Cinnamon Muffins

It's the happiest time of the year! It's the holiday season, which means everyone is gallivanting with a smile on their face. And why shouldn't they! The snow, the lights, the merriment... I could go on. 

Some of my favorite things to do this time of year involve walking the streets of New York City. I love seeing the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, watching the light shows on the storefronts down 5th Avenue, and visiting the winter boutiques in Bryant Park. The city is so romantic.

Along with the holiday season comes parties and get-togethers with family, friends, and distant relatives. Whether you're hosting or attending, these muffins are the perfect holiday treat!

1/4 t. nutmeg
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
1 egg + 1 eggwhite
3/4 c. milk (I used SkimPlus)
2 1/2 T. butter, melted
