Adding a little drizzle over the baked muffins is tasty too, and adds a little extra flare for special occasions.

To make a glaze grab these ingredients:
1. 1 cup powdered sugar
2. 1 tsp milk or a dairy-free substitute

Mix these two ingredients and drizzle over baked muffins.

Don’t these look delicious? Just look at all the swirls of cinnamon.
