Cardamom Crumb Muffins

Despite all recent evidence to the contrary, I do make things other than muffins.  But this past Friday night, Meaghan and I decided to have a cozy night inside:  reading, tea, cats and Cardamom Crumb Muffins.  They are fast to through together and completely delightful.  It’s a perfect way to fill your house with a spicy scent and celebrate the arrival of the season. -Amanda
