Small Batch Sinckerdoodle Muffins: A Year Round Treat

When my husband and I first moved to Connecticut we found this great little coffee shop, which unfortunately went out of business last year.  The best sugary sweet treat that they made was their snickerdoodle cookies and after countless visits to this shop I always associate snickerdoodles with them.  I came across a recipe for snickerdoodle bread and knew I wanted to try baking it some day.  The holidays were a perfect time to try this recipe, but instead of bread I turned it into convenient muffins.  This recipe is also great because it’s a small batch, which I always prefer.  The holidays are here, but this is definitely one treat to enjoy all year round.
