Spiral-bounds offer a cornucopia of delights for the linen-lined bread basket. Redolent of rosemary, these savory, crowd-pleasing muffins boast a goat cheese filling. From Stop and Smell the Rosemary by the Junior League of Houston.

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 350°. Cook first 5 ingredients in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, 2 minutes or just until it begins to steam; remove from heat. Add butter; stir until butter melts. Cool completely. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Stir together egg and milk mixture until well blended; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. Spoon one-third of batter into 1 lightly greased 12-cup muffin pan; add 2 tsp. goat cheese to each muffin cup. Spoon remaining batter over goat cheese, filling each cup two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 20 to 24 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack 3 minutes. Remove from pan.

Make these at your own risk! Half way through the first mouth full at lunch, three people had asked for the recipe, and my husband "suggested" I make a second batch for dinner. My son-in-law was too busy eating to critique them, but did manage several "yum" noises. And the recipe is easy. Just allow at least 5 extra minutes for baking, depending on your oven. Be prepared to be a star!

I made this for my book club - everyone loved it and asked for the recipe! It is very unusual, but the flavors are fantastic!
