The chefs in Food Network Kitchens had so many favorite muffins in Food Network Magazine’s 50 Muffins (page 100, December issue) that we couldn’t print them all. Pick up the issue to see the ones that made the cut — then try this extra Mini Rumball Muffin recipe for a new twist on an old cookie classic.

Mini Rumball Muffins

Combine 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup each finely ground vanilla wafer cookies and walnuts, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon each cinnamon, nutmeg and fine salt. In another bowl, whisk 3/4 cup each whole milk and vegetable oil, 2 large eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Fold the milk-egg mixture into the flour mixture. Divide among 36 to 48 mini muffin liners. Bake at 350 degrees F until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, 16 to 18 minutes. Heat 1/2 cup each rum and dark brown sugar and whisk until the sugar dissolves. Poke holes in the warm muffins and drizzle with the rum mixture. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
