Lemon Poppyseed Muffins with Lemon Glaze

I love Lemon Poppyseed Muffins.  I don’t make them nearly often enough! The problem with making them is that I then have to eat them all…I love the citrus taste of these along with the subtle CrUnCh from the poppyseeds. Alright, truth be told? It is the Lemon Glaze that keeps me coming back for more!

Milk, to desired consistency

Remove from oven and cool on wire rack for 10 minutes before turning out to cool completely.

While muffins are cooling, make the Lemon Glaze.

Lemon Glaze
In medium mixing bowl combine icing sugar, lemon juice and vanilla; stir.
Add enough milk to your desired consistency…go slow here…easier to add a lil milk than to add more icing sugar!
Spread Glaze over cooling Muffins and let cool completely allowing the Glaze to set before storing in an airtight container.
