Personal Notes:
My Mom made these every Thanksgiving & Christmas for as long as I can remember. We didn't really care about any of the other food, just these muffins, warm out of the oven! If you plan to have some of these around for your Holiday meals, double the batch or there won't be any left come dinner time!
