Are you guilty of hitting the snooze button in the morning? I’ve got something that’s guaranteed to pull you out of bed: spiced apple muffins. But these aren’t just any apple muffins, mind you — they have a slightly crunchy streusel topping, and are served with a cinnamon-honey butter you’ll want to eat with a spoon.

I’m not going to lie — these muffins are a bit time-intensive, but you can make them over the weekend and then enjoy them all week long.

Made with cognac-simmered apples, sour cream, turbinado sugar, and cardamom, these muffins are moist, filling, and perfectly spiced. The streusel topping and cinnamon-honey butter really are just icing on the cake.
