Snickerdoodle Muffins

I love Snickerdoodle cookies, so the other day when I was browsing for a recipe I ran across this one at http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitchen-blog. Goodness they looked sooooo Yummy I had to give them a try and take some to work on Friday in honor of the Mom's since it was Mother's day weekend! They were Yummo and go great with a cup of Hot Chocolate (perfect for these cold, rainy Spring mornings we've been having!) After dipping the dough in the cinnamon sugar, I had quite a bit leftover, so I added a little flour, brown sugar, and melted butter to it and made a streusel topping that I sprinkled over the tops of the muffins before baking. Who doesn't love a little extra crunch and cinnamon on a muffin?? Enjoy!

Snickerdoodle Muffins
1 cup Butter, Softened
1 cup Sugar
2 whole Eggs
2 teaspoons Vanilla
2-¼ cups Flour
¾ teaspoons Baking Powder
¾ teaspoons Baking Soda
¾ teaspoons Cream Of Tartar
½ teaspoons Salt
1 cup Sour Cream
¼ cups Buttermilk

⅔ cups Sugar
2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
After dipping add:
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons melted butter

Preparation Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Prepare a muffin tin with liners. Or generously grease with Crisco... These muffins need a bit more than just non-stick cooking spray.
In a mixer, combine the butter and sugar and cream until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and combine.
In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add half of the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add the sour cream and buttermilk and mix to combine. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix until you have a smooth batter.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon for the topping.
Use scooper and plop a scoop of batter into the bowl with the sugar and cinnamon. Gently roll the batter in the sugar and cinnamon. Place the ball into the muffin liner.
When you have completed all of the muffins, combine the leftover cinnamon sugar mixture with the flour, brown sugar, and melted butter and stir with a fork to combine. This makes a streusel topping. Then sprinkle this mixture onto the tops of all of the muffins.
