I decided to try one of the muffin recipes (mainly because I wanted to use my halloween cupcake papers).
Spiced Apple Muffins:
1/4 cup of shortening
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of milk
1 cup of finely chopped apples
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Cream together shortening, sugar, and egg, blend well. Add milk alternately with dry ingredients. Next you fold in the chopped apples. Fill muffin greased or paper lined muffin pans half full.
Now for my favorite part of this recipe... the topping!!
1/3 cup of brown sugar (firmly packed)
1/3 cup of chopped nuts... (I used pecans)
1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
Mix well and spread over muffins and add apple slices to each muffin (optional).
Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
Enjoy and happy halloween!
