French Breakfast Muffins

My kids always eat the top of these muffins first, but the bottom half is equally delicious!

-Aunt Kristi

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup melted butter (1/4 cup if only dipping top)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 15 (12) muffin tins (I use paper liners). Thoroughly mix shortening, 1/2 cup sugar and egg together. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg alternately with milk. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake 20-25 minutes. In separate bowl, mix 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon together.

Immediately after baking, roll muffins in melted butter, then in cinnamon mixture. Serve hot.
