Sugar Crusted Muffins


Sugar Crusted Muffins

For Muffins:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg

For Topping:

  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix all the dry ingredients together for the muffins. Cut in shortening until the mixture is coarse. In a small bowl, beat egg and add milk to the egg. Add the milk and egg to the dry mixture, stirring until just moistened. Spray a muffin pan with non-stick oil. Fill the muffin tins about half full. Bake for 20 minutes in a pre-heated 450 degree oven.

While baking, melt the butter in a small bowl. Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a large baggie. As soon as the muffins are ready, dip their tops into the melted butter and shake them in the large baggie. Best when served warm! You can make mini-muffins, but take them out of the oven when golden brown.
