I have a confession: I’m hooked! Hooked on Pinterest.com. In case you’ve never heard of it, which I can NOT imagine, it is a virtual bulletin board where you can “pin” pictures/articles you find on the internet (for FREE!). For me, this is amazing, because I often find something I want to share with someone and then can’t find it when I need it. Anywho…Pinterest also allows you to look at what others are “pinning”. In a way, it helps to keep up on trends. (You can also “follow” people – like me, for example, http://pinterest.com/bakingway/ if you have similar interests. Not that I’m trying to get you “hooked” too ; )
Right now, one of the trends that everyone seems interested in is Snickerdoodle anything: muffins, cakes, cookies. I became so interested in this recipe, I looked it up and tried it. Of course, I made a few adjustments to the original recipe to better suit my tastes. Looking at the top of the muffins, you’d swear you’re looking at Snickerdoodle Cookies. I think you’ll enjoy it too! This recipe makes 12 large muffins.In a mixing bowl, cream until light colored and fluffy: 1 cup Butter, room temperature 1 cup Sugar Add to above: 1-1/4 cups Yogurt 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract 2 Eggs In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients: 2-1/4 cups Flour 3/4 tsp. Baking Soda 3/4 tsp. Baking Powder 3/4 tsp. Cream of Tartar 1 tsp. Nutmeg
Stir dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, careful not to over-mix.
Drop scoops of muffin batter in a shallow plate or bowl with cinnamon sugar mixture. Turn each scoop of batter over in order to thoroughly coat all around with sugar. Place the scoop in muffin paper/pans. Bake in 350 degree oven for 22-25 minutes, or until done in center.
