I found them in the grocery store... I live in Southeastern CT... I believe I found them at Stop&Shop or Shaws... do you have either store?

Are these regular size muffins or mini? If they're not mini, I'd just cook them for less time, like 11-14minutes? I have the same liners too, I got them at Shaw's.
