Snickerdoodle Muffins

I love snickerdoodle cookies so when I saw this snickerdoodle muffin recipe I knew I had to try it.  We had some friends in town and that was the perfect opportunity to make this muffin recipe.  They were absolutely amazing and everyone enjoyed them. This recipe is from Very Culinary.

2 sticks unsalted butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
2 whole eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup buttermilk (or whole milk)

For the Topping:

2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon

Heat oven to 350. Line muffin tine with muffin liners.  In a small bowl combine the sugar and cinnamon for the topping.  In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer.  Add in the eggs and vanilla.  In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt.  Add half of the dry ingredients to the butter mixture.  Add in the sour cream and butter milk then add in the remaining dry ingredients.  For the muffins, scoop up the batter using a little over a tablespoon and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture then place in the muffin liners.  Repeat until all the batter is done.  If there is left over cinnamon sugar, sprinkle on top of the muffins.  Bake for 15 minutes or until golden on top.
