Applesauce Muffins

Something about these cold snowy days has made me think of lots of excuses to turn the oven on. Today I decided I wanted to try to new recipe, but I wanted something easy. I found this recipe on Rebecca Cooper's blog and thought it sounded good, Applesauce Muffins. I had all the ingredients on hand already, so no need to run to the store. I thought they were really good.

Here's her recipe (with a couple of edits):

Applesauce Muffins

1/2 cup room temperature butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cups applesauce
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

topping

1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon (I like cinnamon, so I actually used a full tsp.)

Cream butter & sugar. Beat in eggs until fluffy. Add applesauce. Sift in dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Scoop batter into 12 muffin papers, or greased muffin tin. Bake at 350f until tops are golden brown, about 15-18 minutes. While muffins are still warm, dip tops in melted butter and then in cinnamon sugar mixture.
