Snickerdoodle Muffins

Snickerdoodle Muffins036

Happy Labor Day weekend! A good time to bake. Although I already made these this week, so… a good time to buy baked goods? Anyway, the recipe I use for snickerdoodle muffins is “slightly modified” from this (basically you don’t need that much cinnamon sugar), and I have to say, these muffins are delicious. And then, of course, I’ve made my own slight modification: once the dough is prepared, the recipe tells you to roll an ice cream scoop’s worth in cinnamon sugar before placing it in your muffin tin. Instead of doing this, I do two or three smaller spoonfuls of batter per muffin cup, resulting in a cinnamon sugar ribbon through the muffin. I thought no one would notice this, but I was wrong. Apparently I’m not the only one who adores cinnamon.

Also different for me: this picture is of an unfinished project. I’d like to add some watercolor and ink, but I’m not sure what my color scheme is going to be yet, and I don’t know when I’ll figure it out. (And I’m afraid of ruining the sketch.) So instead, a glimpse into a work in progress.
