Snickerdoodle Muffins

Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookies so when I saw this recipe for Snickerdoodle Muffins I was really excited to try them. They taste JUST like the cookies, but in muffin form, making them the best muffins I've ever made! Not the healthiest or most diet friendly, but they are so yummy! Cinnamon sugar coating on top of these soft fluffy muffin bottoms made these little babies disappear in a flash when I brought them into hubby's office for his co-workers. They will be a huge hit when you make them too!

Makes 16 muffins
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks (16 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup sour cream (greek yogurt would also work)
1/4 cup buttermilk

For the topping
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin cups with muffin paper (do not use cooking spray). In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tarter, nutmeg and salt and set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Beat in half of dry ingredients then add in sour cream and buttermilk. Beat in the remaining dry ingredients until just incorporated (batter will be soft). To make the topping combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Using an ice cream or large cookie scooper drop the scoop of batter into the bowl with sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle the dough with the mixture and roll it around until it is covered completely. 
Place the ball into the muffin paper and repeat with remaining batter. Sprinkle the leftover cinnamon and sugar on the top of the batter. 
Bake until the muffin tops are golden brown, 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Set on wire rack to cool at least 5 minutes.
