Snickerdoodle Muffins

Saturday, May 16, 2009
These muffins have been on my "To Bake" list for a while. I finally decided to make them this afternoon and I can't believe that I waited so long! The tops of the muffins are nice and crunchy from the cinnamon-sugar and the inside is nice and moist. I thought these were more like little cakes than muffins - very good!

Snickerdoodle Muffins
(Printable Recipe)

2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
¾ tsp baking soda
¾ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp cream of tartar
¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 and ¼ cup sour cream
2 and ¼ cups all purpose flour

1 cup sugar and 2 TBSP cinnamon mixed together for rolling

Cream the butter and sugar until soft about 3 to 5 minutes. Add in the vanilla. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix until each is incorporated.

In a separate, mix together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder and cream of tartar.

Add the flour mixture and the sour cream alternately to the egg-butter mixture in the additions. Start with the flour and end with the flour. Scrape the bowl occasionally.

Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out muffin batter one at a time and drop into a greased muffin tin. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with the cinnamon-sugar. Depending on the size of your tins, you should get about 12 to 14 muffins (I got 20). Bake them for approx. 20-22 minutes in a 350F oven or until they are golden brown.
