I recently purchased Autumn in the Country from Gooseberry Patch and let me tell you, it is a must have! Normally when I purchase cookbooks, I can only find one or two recipes that I or my family would actually like, not the case with this book. I have found so many, I could be cooking for weeks. Reading through it has really gotten me craving the sights, smells, and sounds of Fall. Today I wanted to share at least one recipe with you that I intend to make at some point this week.

Snickerdoodle Mini Muffins

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1 c. quick-cooking oats, uncooked

3/4 c. sugar, divided

1 T. baking powder

1 c. milk

1 egg, beaten

1/4 c. margarine, softened

1 t. vanilla extract

1 t. cinnamon

Combine flour, oats, 1/2 cup sugar and baking powder; mix well. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, margarine and vanilla; blend well and add to flour mixture. Fill greased mini muffin cups 2/3 full. Mix together cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over muffins. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes. Makes 3 dozen.

Ooh I love snickerdoodles. I might have to jot this recipe down. I can almost smell them just reading it. Thanks for sharing!
