Recipe for Luscious Lemon Muffins


    Luscious Lemon Muffins

    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    2 eggs, separated
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

    In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks; mix well.

    Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add alternately with lemon juice to creamed mixture.

    Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter with lemon peel.

    Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    Yields 9 muffins.
