Lemon, Rose Water Mini Muffins (Dairy, Gluten, and Refined Sugar Free)

By Irene Shaver @hhwife
Rose water is often used in Middle Eastern dishes, however has been used in North America as early as the Victorian era when vanilla was less popular.  Rose water doesn't have any nutritional value however does add a nice flavor.  I like the combination of the rose water with the lemon in these little mini muffins.
