makes 12 muffins

donated to a homemade book by a person named Angie Farnsworth (thanks Angie)

Prep time: 5 minutes

Bake time: 10-15 minutes

Cost: $70

(butter: .30, sugar: .15, egg: .10, milk: .15)

1/2 C butter, softened

1/2 C brown sugar

1 egg

2 C whole what flour

1 tsp soda

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 C milk

handful chips or fruit, optional

Cream together butter and brown sugar. Add egg. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add them to the butter mixture. Remember that with muffins you want the dry ingredients just barely incorporated. If you mix the shadingdang out of the batter, your muffins will come out dry and tough instead of light and cake-like. If using, the bad mothers can gently fold in their chips and the good mothers can gently fold in their fruit. Put batter into 12 muffin tins. Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes. Note: With this reduced sugar recipe, you want to be sure not to overcook these babies or they really will come out dry.
