These are SOOOOOOO YUMMY! They are perfect to wrap up and give as a gift, to serve at your child’s class holiday party or even for Christmas breakfast!
Lets get started: first, get your ingredients ready:
Next, start creaming your butter and sugar. Recently, I’ve read a few recipes that tell you to ALWAYS use a stand mixter but I use a hand held one and it works perfectly. You want the butter and sugar to be light and fluffy.
Now add the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar mixture. Be sure to add them gradually. The batter will look like this:
Add the milk and it will look like this: nice and creamy.
Make sure your mini muffin pan is lined and pour the batter into each cup.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes until they are nice and golden brown.
As the muffins cool, prepare the glaze by combining the cinnamon, confection sugar and milk. You want the glaze to be thick so add more sugar or milk as needed.
To finish the muffins, pour the glaze over each mini treat and enjoy!
Another amazing way to enjoy these muffins is to skip the glaze and use vanilla bean butter like the one from saltopia! Wow! Really, there are not words for how delicious this butter is!
