Snickerdoodle Muffins

Hi everyone!

I’m not sure how the weather is where you are, but here we’ve been having some warmer than usual temps…and I’m LOVING it!!! I hope all’s well in your “neck of the woods”.

If you’re anything like me, you LOVE cinnamon. I love adding a little extra when I’m using it…it’s so yummy! (I can’t seem to help myself.) 🙂

Ever have any Snickerdoodle cookies? They’re coated with cinnamon sugar and they’re SO good. I decided to try out making some Snickerdoodle Muffins and they turned out so delicious!

It’s a little tricky getting the gooey muffins rolled in the cinnamon sugar but it’s definitely worth it!!! It makes the outside is slightly crunchy while the inside is still moist and soft. Everybody that tried these loved them and I’m sure you will too! ENJOY!

Happy Cooking!
