When I first saw these Snickerdoodle Muffins, I thought they were named after my favorite cookie only because they are covered in cinnamon-sugar. I had to find out for myself if they really stood up to the Snickerdoodle name.
First of all these muffins, just like the cookie, are very hands-on in that you take balls of batter and roll it in cinnamon-sugar before baking. Once they are baked, they have a nice fluffy center that is much lighter than traditional muffins, and the crackled tops have a slight crunch to them that really resembles a snickerdoodle cookie. Best of all, these muffins really do taste just like a snickerdoodle! I'm not sure which one I like better now, the cookie or the muffin??
While these muffins make a yummy breakfast the next day, I think eating them fresh and warm out of the oven was the best. I found that the crunch on the top that I loved was lost after a few hours.
