Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I made these over the weekend and they were a hit.  I love the crumbly top.  And I love having an apple peeler/corer.  Go get one and make these.

2 1/3 c. flour

1/4 c. brown sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

9 tbsp. butter

2-3 small apples, cored, peeled and cut into small pieces

1/3 c. sugar

1 tbsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 egg

1 c. milk

1 tsp. vanilla

*Heat oven to 375. Spray muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray.

*Combine 1/3 c. flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Cut in 3 tbsp. butter until mixture resembles small crumbs; set aside.

*Combine remaining 2 c. flour, baking powder, and 1/2 tsp. salt together in separate bowl.

*Melt remaining 6 tbsp. butter, mix egg, milk, vanilla, and sugar to melted butter.

*Combine butter mixture to flour mixture. Stir well. Add apples to mixture.

*Spoon into muffin tins; top with crumb mixture.

*Bake about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
