Currently, as I write this week's blog entry, I am munching on these addictive Cinnamon Sugar Mini Muffins. When I say addictive, I really mean it! When Taylor first made these muffins and we took pictures of them, it took all of my will power not to eat them in between shots.

However, I kept reminding myself that our adorable mountain of mini muffins would not be a mountain if I was snacking the whole time! I think you would all be able to tell in our pictures if those sweet mini muffins were slowly disappearing. As soon as we knew we were happy with how our photos turned out, we raced to eat some!

However, these Cinnamon Sugar Mini Muffins appear difficult to bake for anyone you are wanting to impress and they are so delicious that it seems like the recipe should have a million ingredients!
