I didn't like this recipe: too much nutmeg, brown sugar only on the top, and dipping your muffins in butter. But I will say they did look pretty.

Yummy yummy in our tummies! I lightened the recipe a bit by using applesauce in place of the shortening (I just don't use shortening) and I did not dip them in additional butter but instead sprinkled them with a Cinnamon Sugar spice blend before baking and they were perfect! Nice and moist and love the cinnamony flavor throughout the muffin! Thanks Ms. Sally for a great recipe to use over and over again! Made for the Holiday Tag Game Dec. 08

Oh my goodness, I was so surprised at these! Amazingly simple to make, and super tasty, almost like a little cinnamon doughnut. Our musical rehearsal loved them! The only important thing to note is that there is an additional cup of sugar, to mix with the cinnamon, which is not listed. I'll definitely be demanded to make these again!
