Maria Cooks, Part 3

Maria's photos couldn't have come at a better time, as I stubbornly refuse to buy more food before going out of town for the holidays (Mexico, Mo., here we come!). So tomorrow I'll be blogging about breakfast cereal, but today it's all about Maria.
Cinnamon Muffins:
2 medium eggs
3 cups of flour
1 cup of milk
1 cup of sugar
5 tablespoons of butter
5 tablespoons of shortening (or 5 additional T butter)
3 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg (I didn't have any)
Topping: I (Maria) combined some softened butter, sugar, cinnamon and flour in a bowl and crumbled it with my hands.

Cream together the butter, the shortening (butter) and the sugar. Beat in the eggs, salt, nutmeg and baking powder. Stir in the flour and milk alternately until mixture is just combined. Fill muffin cups almost to the top. Add crumb mixture until cups are filled. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
More to come from Maria later this week.

that looks delicious. I haven't made anything worth while. Maybe I will bake more since the holidays are coming up. Good job Maria!

This was really easy to make. Problem is, it's really easy to eat!!

We need more Jenny food pictures. Mine aren't nearly as nice looking.
