1

Preheat oven to 400F and line a muffin tin with muffin papers. (I said muffin a lot there but I don't know what else to call them...)

2

Beat together butter, greek yogurt, and sugars until creamy

3

Add eggs and vanilla and beat until nice and fluffy

4

Gradually stir in dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg) just until combined.

5

Gently stir in the milk, just until combined.

6

Spoon into prepared muffin tin, filling each 3/4 full.

7

Bake at 400F for about 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool while you make the glaze.

8

In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients (powdered sugar, buttermilk, vanilla, and almond extract). That's it. Easy-peasy. If you want to get super creative and fancy, you can substitute the almond extract for another flavor (like orange...)

now the fun stuff
9

Spoon glaze over the tops of the slightly cooled muffins. Top with sprinkles, nuts, berries, whatever.
Pro tip: Unless you're a super-speedy glazer, just glaze one or two muffins at a time then add toppings. Otherwise, your glaze will have hardened and your sprinkles won't stick.
