Yesterday, I had such a good day. I started out making these delicious muffins in the morning.
I will give you the recipe, don't worry!
Then, we got dressed and went to see the movie, Mission Impossible. What a fun movie!! I highly recommend it if you haven't already seen it. It was jam packed with action, cool spy tricks and beautiful scenery from around the world. Go see it on the big screen before it comes out on video! Then we went out to eat at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. We came home and collapsed. It was a long fun day.
However, it all changed this morning, when my youngest son woke up with a fever! So....looks like we'll be spending a different kind of day at home today.
The recipe is for Blueberry Muffins with Lemon-Cream Cheese Glaze. I found it in this magazine.
I knew as soon as I saw it, that I was going to have to make them!
I did alter the recipe just a bit. I cheated and used a muffin mix instead of making them from scratch. The part of the recipe that I made was the glaze. So, I'm only including the recipe for the glaze.
Here is what I did:
I made muffins from this mix.
Then I got out my glaze ingredients.
powdered sugar, cream cheese, lemon, vanilla
I beat the cream cheese with lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla.
Then I added the powdered sugar.
Once your muffins are baked, you can spread the glaze on them like a frosting.
The recipe made a lot more glaze than I needed. I have refrigerated it to use on muffins in the future.
Here is the official recipe from the magazine:
Lemon-Cream Cheese Glaze
1 (3 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
Beat cream cheese at med. speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add lemon zest and next 2 ingredients; beat until smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until smooth.
Thanks for stopping by!
