Snickerdoodle Muffins Taste Just Like Eating a Snickerdoodle Cookies for Breakfast.
The last year we had children living at home I made muffins every Monday. It is one of the things I wanted to do to make the year feel special. I decided I could be sad and depressed about the looming empty nest or I could celebrate this last year by creating special moments at every opportunity.
Snickerdoodle Muffin Recipe
One thing we have tried to do as a family since our children started school years ago is to read scriptures together in the morning before they went out the door. Depending on kid’s school schedules, some years have been easier than others. The year we had someone in elementary, middle school and high school was a bit tough. You would think now that we only have one child at home it would be easier but it still has its challenges.
So I decided on Monday mornings when we sat down to read I would have warm, fresh muffins for breakfast. Tessa isn’t much of a hot breakfast eater first thing in the morning, but she does enjoy a nice fresh muffin!
The crunchy sweet sugar/cinnamon topping melts in your mouth! They were great warmed up in the microwave the next day with a bit of butter melted on top too. That is if they don’t all get eaten up fresh from the oven.
How to Make Snickerdoodle Muffins
These yummy muffins are easy to make. After mixing up the batter, fill your muffin tin (I like to use liners) 2/3 full.
Sprinkle the top with a cinnamon sugar mixture for that crunchy, sweet sugary topping that makes these muffins so amazing.
Be generous with the topping, the more the better as far as I’m concerned.
If you love cinnamon, the crunchy sweet sugar cinnamon topping on these muffins will make you very happy.
