Apple Crisp Muffins

My hubby has deemed me "The Muffin Lady" because I'm always making muffins for breakfast! BUT he's always glad when I do...he likes eating them as much as I like making them...so its a "win, win" situation. These Apple Crisp Muffins made my house smell like fresh apple pie and were a great way to start the morning. The cream cheese center makes them moist, yet the topping gives them a yummy little crunch!

Apple Crisp Muffins
2 c. flour
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. nutmeg
1 egg, beaten
1 c. milk (not skim or fat free)
1/2 c. oil
2 c. shredded apples

In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredient, whisk together and set aside. In another bowl combine egg, milk and oil. Stir until mixed. Combine dry ingredient with wet ingredient stir until moistened. Fold in apples. Scoop batter into well greased or lined muffin cups. Fill 3/4 way full. Set aside.

1 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 T maple syrup
1 1/2 t. cinnamon

Combine all ingredient. Mix until smooth. Drop by spoonful into centers of muffins.

1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. old fashioned oatmeal
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 t. nutmeg
3 T cold butter

Mix all ingredient, cutting in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives. Mixture should be crumbly and coarse. Sprinkle over the filling. BAKE MUFFINS at 400 degrees for 14-18 minutes. Serve warm.

Yield: 1 dozen muffins
