Sunday Tea? Bake some Maraschino Cherry & Almond Muffins!

Happy Mother's Day!

Having someone over for a Mother's Day afternoon tea?

This little "pretty in pink" muffin made with almonds and maraschino cherries would fit the bill.  

Today's recipe is from Muffins - a Cookbook (1982) by Joan Bidinosti and Marilyn Wearring, two Ontario mothers and great cooks.  Good news!  A quick search indicated that this book is still available (used) on Amazon.
