Cinnamon Strawberry Muffins

I absolutely love strawberry season.  I also love cute cupcake/muffin liners.  OK anything cute for the kitchen.  It's been a long week so I created these as a surprise for my co-workers/friends in the morning.

                        Cinnamon Strawberry Muffins

   1/2  cup butter, softened
   3/4  cup sugar
   1 large egg
   1 1/2  cups flour
   1 1/2  tsp baking powder
   1/2  tsp salt
   1/4  tsp nutmeg
   6 ounces plain Greek yogurt
   1/4  cup milk
   1 cup strawberries, chopped and lightly mashed
   1 tsp sugar

Cream butter and sugar.  Add in egg, vanilla, Greek yogurt and milk.
Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl and gradually add in.

Chop the strawberries and add 1 tbsp sugar before lightly mashing.  Fold
into batter.  Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake for 10 minutes, remove from
oven and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.

Cinnamon sugar - 3 tbsp sugar and 1/2 tbsp cinnamon.  If you don't use
all, store remainder for your next baking adventure.

Bake for 18 minutes at 350°F
