  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 6 jumbo muffin cups with Crisco® Butter Flavor No-Stick Cooking Spray. In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup orange marmalade until blended. Stir in egg, 1 tablespoon orange peel, orange extract and salt until well blended. Add cornmeal and baking powder; mix well. Alternately add 2/3 cup orange juice and flour, stirring just until moistened. Spoon rounded 1/3 cup batter into each muffin cup.

  • 3 Meanwhile, to make candied orange peel, using vegetable peeler, cut 1/2-inch-wide strips of peel from orange. Using knife, cut orange peel into fine strips. In 1-quart saucepan, bring granulated sugar, orange peel strips and water to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 minutes. With slotted spoon, remove peel from syrup. Cool on waxed paper.
  • 4 In small bowl, combine glaze ingredients; mix well. Set aside. In another small bowl, beat together orange butter ingredients until light and fluffy. Set aside.
  • 5 Drizzle glaze over tops of muffins. Garnish each with candied orange peel. Serve with orange butter.
