Don't forget to enter my giveaway at the bottom of this post for the kitchen tools used to create these muffins. I have been wanting to create these muffins for some time. I absolutely love lemon-flavored dishes and desserts, like my Lemon Blueberry Parfaits, Citrus Chiffon Cake and Meyer Lemon Whipping Cream Cake. Lemon brightens up any dish, and since some people are having a very cold and gloomy Winter, this is the perfect way to brighten your day.

Lemon Breakfast Pull-Apart Muffins are extremely easy to make. The pre-made biscuit dough saves you time since you don't have to make it from scratch. The most time consuming thing is zesting the lemons, which is pretty easy with the KitchenIQ V-etched Better Zester. I have to admit, I am a bit picky when it comes to zesters and microplanes. After working for a few years as a pastry chef, I have zested my fair share of citrus. This zester was a pleasant surprise. I love how fine the zest was, and being able to measure the amount, instead of guessing was great.

I also used the Casabella Citrus Juicer and Reamer for the icing. It was very nice to have the juicer right over a measuring cup. It didn't catch all the seeds, but it did get most of them - my lemon had a few small ones that I still had to fish out.  The Casabella Large Silicone Muffin Pan was great because it is a non-stick surface and can go from freezer to oven without worry. The size is good for a morning muffin because it is just enough. Overall I like these products and will continue to use them in my kitchen.
