After several months of drooling, I finally placed my first order with Penzeys spices. I had heard raves about their spices, and I decided that since I love cooking I might as well make my cooking the best that I could. And at a little under $40, the awesomeness of quality I saw in the first recipe I made were well worth it.
These muffins came out beautifully. I'm not much of a blueberry muffin person, but this one changes my mind. Even with some cook error - not whipping the butter & cream cheese enough - the muffins were extremely tender and tasty. And the spices worked beautifully with the texture. Heavenly.
