Snickerdoodle Muffins

My mom bought the boys a cookie pan that has shapes in it. I've been wanting a muffin top pan and she mentioned that maybe I can do muffin tops in this pan. I had to make another batch of muffins for the week seen as the boys ate the other batch I already 2 days! I've been meaning to make these for a while and finally remembered to take the butter out, so here they are!

Snickerdoodle Muffins-adapted from Eat At Home
1 1/2 cups ww flour
1/2 cup ap flour
2 tsp cream of tartar*
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2-2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
cinnamon and sugar(1 tbsp sugar+1 tsp cinnamon)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cream together butter and sugar. Add in applesauce and beat in one egg at a time until incorporated. Add in milk and vanilla, mix. Sift together the dry ingredients and add them to the wet and mix until just combined. Place in prepared muffin tins(either greased or paper lined) Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake for 12-20 mins or until toothpick comes out clean.
*If you don't have cream of tartar, use 1 tbsp of baking powder in the recipe.

**The Muffin "tops" were a little over cooked, but they were still tasty! So if you use a smaller muffin pan or muffin tops make sure to lower the time. But the pan did work well for muffin tops! You can't see the shapes though.
