Ok they turned out so well I'm adding the recipe.
2 cups all-purpose flour, or 2¼ cups pastry flour, sifted
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 cup egg nog coffee creamer
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 large egg (or 2 medium)
4 oz butter (½ stick) or shortening
Splash of milk
Shake of nutmeg and cloves
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
Heat butter until it's thoroughly melted. Set it aside at room temperature to cool, but don't let it solidify again.
Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and then add the sugar, creamer and vanilla to the eggs.
Thoroughly grease and flour a muffin pan (or use paper muffin liners).
Pour a tiny bit of the melted butter into the egg-vanilla-milk mixture and stir it in. Repeat 3-4 more times, adding a slightly larger amount of the liquid butter each time until it is all incorporated.
Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ones and mix no more than ten seconds. Add splashes of milk to loosen the batter if its too thick.
Gently pour the batter into the prepared muffin pan and bake immediately.
Bake 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
*I also topped it with a brown sugar crumble but that's optional.
