Apple Streusel Muffins

Apple Streusel Muffins
1 dozen

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1-1/4 teaspoons vanilla
1-1/2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
for streusel topping1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon cold butter
for glaze
1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk eggs, butter and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened (batter will be stiff). Fold in apples. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Combine brown sugar, flour and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over muffins. Enjoy!

Mr. H. just declared these to be the best muffins I've ever made. His new favorite. :-)

Oh, this sounds scrumptious! I really do want to try it!

Also, if you can, come join in for the Home School Open House tomorrow!

It doesn't have to be an elaborate post...just something your family has done recently relating to learning!
