Spiced Applesauce Muffins


Here's a recipe perfect for Autumn Weekends. It reminds me of a recipe I made when I was a girl in my first year of 4-H cooking, baking with my Grandma Swiler. Make some for your family today! 

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cups sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup applesauce
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon cloves

Topping:
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well. Stir in applesauce. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves. Stir into creamed mixture. 

Fill paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 cull. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes. For topping, melt butter in small bowl. In another small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip muffin tops in butter and then sugar mixture. Set on wire rack to cool. Makes 1 dozen.
