Little Citrus Muffins

Here is another Pampered Chef recipe that uses the mini muffin pan. These little muffins are refreshingly good. Use lemon, lime or orange; you really can't go wrong. They are quick, easy and look wonderful on any dessert table. Good for breakfast, brunch or as an afternoon snack. They are just delicious.

Little Citrus Muffins
Beat 1/4 cup softened butter and 2/3 cup sugar, add 1 egg and beat till smooth. Add 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 2 teaspoons citrus zest. Stir together 1 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Gently add flour mixture to wet ingredients. Do not over mix.
Spray mini muffin pan with Pam, using small cookie scoop fill each muffin cup with a rounded scoop of batter.
Bake at 375 for 11-12 minutes. Let cool a few minutes and remove from pan. Cool and glaze or frost with citrus frosting. I mix citrus zest, a little butter, powdered sugar and fresh citrus juice to desired consistency. Drizzle or frost. I have been known to add some softened cream cheese to the frosting. Makes 24 yummy citrus bites.
