These muffins are PACKED with lemon because I love the sweet zesty tang of lemon, and I’m 100 percent ready for spring. Winter in upstate New York is really dragging on, with snow forecast this weekend ?. These little muffins are my hope. Hope for spring and warmer weather. I can almost taste the hope of spring with every bite. I found out that brushing lemon juice on the muffins makes these bursts with lemon flavor. I mean it’s like I’m biting into a lemon, a sweet, fluffy, delicious lemon. Oh, and the glaze really tops off the muffins with a sweet lemon punch.
