I am not an elegant individual so I just used the stick end of a wooden spoon to work the dough to the sides of the cookie cutters (instead of my fingers as the recipe suggested) so as not to burn myself. The muffins were salty and delicious. I have tried them warm with jam as well as bacon and egg sandwiches.
