Tasty Delights-- Snickerdoodle Muffins

Tasty Delights and Dazzling Disasters is all about playing in the kitchen and having some fun.

I'll share my delights or my disasters. Yall feel free to join in and create your own posts, share your favorite recipes, what have you. 

Yup. Snickerdoodle Muffins. 
I saw these this summer and decided I had to make em. 
Good lord they smell GOOD! And they were pretty easy to make. 
Messy. But easy :)

Start by creaming your butter and sugar. 

Then add in eggs and vanilla and mix well.

Alright, so I think it probably shouldn't look quite like this. But I tried to make these a little healthier by using one of those sugar substitutes and, well, consistency wise I think it made things a touch wonky. 

Alternate adding in your sour cream...

And flour. Mixing well.

Make up a bowl of cinnamon and sugar and plop dollops of batter into the mix and shake until all the way coated then bake em up. And yeah. This part was totally messy. My fingers ended up caked with batter/sugar/cinnamon. I smell really freaking good right now. lol

These were actually pretty good. I had to play a bit with the recipe because it wasn't quite complete as it was but in the end I think I like these. I'm probably going to try them again with regular sugar to see how that goes. They're just lightly sweet but gah they small incredible.
