They are our inland lighthouses, the fire towers of western North Carolina. Long ago decommissioned as regular lookouts, these wobbly perches still have plenty of character and purpose. Just ask all the hikers.
These mini-muffins are perfectly portable, making them a great snack for a lunch box, a picnic, a road trip, or a potluck. It's just a bonus that they're adorable, making our favorite fair food a little more refined.
