At Christmas time, I love making Snickerdoodles especially with green and red baking sugar instead of regular grandulated sugar. So when I saw a recipe for Snickerdoodle muffins on a new blog (at least for me), I knew that I needed to make them. Today provided a great opportunity to make them. I was going to pick up the Imaginative One from VBS and then going to visit Mary Jane before heading to the library. We eat our lunch at her house while visiting. I decided I needed to treat Mary Jane to a homemade treat.
The Imaginative One, Mary Jane, and myself all agree that these muffins are keepers.
Without futher ado, I present you the recipe for Snickerdoodle muffins.
from Eat at home cook
Stars of the recipe:
- 2 cups of all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. of salt
- 2 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 stick of butter softened
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 & 1/2 tsp. of vanilla
- 1 Tbsp. of sugar and 1 tsp. of cinnamon (Or if you were me, you would use even more cinnamon.)
- In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar, and baking soda. Put aside.
- Using either your mixer or your hand held mixer, cream the butter and sugar.
- Add the eggs (I usually break the eggs in a bowl and add them one at a time.).
- Add the milk and vanilla. Mix until it is well combined.
- Stir in the dry ingredients until well moistened. (I put a little bit of the dry ingredients at a time.)
- Fill muffin cups 2/3rds of the way full of batter.
- Sprinkle the muffins with cinnamon sugar.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.
