Ahhh! My post is late! A little busy this week with my hubby’s 40th birthday and my in-law’s are visiting. Plus, for some reason my camera wasn’t cooperating with me and most of my pictures didn’t turn out. I had to do two photo shoots because of lighting issues and I’m still getting used to the new camera. Anyways, better late than never!
I’ve been thinking about making these muffins since March Break when we had lunch at Panera Bread. My oldest son doesn’t like raisins so I kept them out and added extra apple. These Apple Cinnamon Cobblestone Muffins are probably my family’s new favorite treat.
These muffins remind me of individual monkey breads. Instead of using pre-made biscuits for the dough, this dough is made from scratch. I used my stand mixer to make the dough and then waited for it to double in size to start making the muffins. Once the dough was ready, the process is almost the exact same as making monkey bread. The only thing I didn’t do was the icing part. I’m not a fan of icing sugar glaze and they were just as good without it.
I found the parchment paper liners at my local grocery store but you could make your own. I loved how big they were and how they held everything together. I don’t think regular paper liners would cut it for these babies! So, if you’re a fan of cinnamon, apples, and sweet dough, then you definitely need to make these. You can share them with family and friends or you can hide them and keep them for yourself! Well, that would be a little much, right?!
