Cobblestone Muffins

Have you ever tried Panera Bread's Cobblestone Muffins?

Let me first say this: YUM! Do you like cinnamon, apples and raisins? Well here is a recipe similar to Panera's Cobblestone treat!

Cobblestone Muffins

4 eggs
6 oz sugar
1 t salt
2 C milk - lukewarm
4 oz margarine or butter, melted
8 C all-purpose flour, divided
2 T yeast

2 C brown sugar
4 T Cinnamon
4 oz butter, melted

1/4 C raisins
1 apple, peeled and cut into thin chunks

1 C powdered sugar
milk to desired consistency


In a large mixing bowl beat eggs, sugar, and salt to start the dough. Combine warm milk and melted margarine/butter and slowly add to egg mixture. Slowly add 4 cups of the flour, mixing on low speed. After flour is incorporated, add yeast and mix well. Then, add the rest of the flour slowly. Turn out into an oiled bowl and let double in size.

Line LARGE muffin tins with parchment or muffin cups. Pinch off pieces of dough and roll into balls. Drop the balls into a bowl of melted butter and then roll in cinnamon sugar. Place four balls at the bottom of each muffin cup. Add a mixture of apple and raisins and then top with three or four more dough balls. Top with raisin/apple mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
