These little Mini Snickerdoodle Muffins are quite possibly the easiest and tastiest little bite that you will ever pop in your mouth!
I can’t take all the credit for these as they are a dressed-up version that my mom used to make for us as kids. I added a few ingredients but the base recipe idea came from her.
For me it is not the cinnamon it’s the cream of tartar that gives them their flavor. I love that little bite of tang that makes them so unique.
Now I am not saying that I don’t like the cinnamon…… I just happen to really love cream of tartar. I don’t even really know what it is other than it makes baked goods tangy and turns regular milk into buttermilk.
