Jordan Marsh Muffins
As a little girl, going shopping with my mom at Jordan Marsh was a magical experience. Rows upon rows of beautiful clothes, islands of cosmetics, perfume and jewelry, the glamorous shoppers. Oh yeah, it was a dream world to me.
The best part was sitting in the cafe for Jordan Marsh muffins. Little 7 year old Kate felt so adult sitting in the metal chairs, sharing the muffin experience with all the glamorous shoppers. In fact, I felt a little bit like a glamorous shopper myself.
Like any true New Englander, I mourned a little bit when Jordan Marsh went out of business, and then when the cafe closed its doors.
As an adult, making Jordan Marsh muffins is a delicious treat, and a charming trip down memory lane. To me, they taste like the magic of childhood.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I got this recipe off the Internet years ago. I don't know where exactly I got it from.
