Mini Lemon Tea Muffins!

Today I am going to a sweet Valentine Tea Party at my friend Kari's home. I love her tea parties and have posted other tea parties I have attended. I promise to take lots of pictures!
Kari asked for me to make some Lemon Tea Muffins. They turned out so yummy, I just had to share the recipe!
Fresh from the oven!

Just ready to go in the oven.

Mini Lemon Tea Muffins
1 cup sifted all purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs, separated

3 tbsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. grated lemon peel

2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cream butter and 1/2 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored; blend well with creamed mixture. Add flour mixture alternately with lemon juice. (Do not over-mix.) Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold whites and lemon peel into batter. Fill small greased 2 inch muffin pans 2/3 full. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon over each muffin.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-13 minutes.

Makes about 18 muffins.

I will post pictures of the tea party very soon!

Oh these look wonderful. I can't wait to bake them. I LOVE lemon muffins, but have yet to find the perfect recipe. So many of them are just too sweet. These look great.

What a nice idea. A Valentine's tea. Can't wait to see the photos.

I would love to try these...they are lower in sugar than most recipes and I love the flavor of fresh lemon! Enjoy your day! ♥♥♥

Oh my goodness Maryjane those look soooo good. My mouth is watering for one of those. I will try this.
I have two lemon trees and I freeze
the juice and use it in different
recipes so this will be perfect
for my lemon juice. Thanks so much
for sharing. Hope you enjoy your tea. I am looking forward to seeing the pics of it.By the way I
use ice trays to freeze my lemon juice so 2 ice cubes equal about
1/4 cup.

I made these for breakfast the very morning I saw your post. They were delicious. Although I did switch them up a little - I have to be in the right mood for cinnamon, so for the topping I made a glaze with powdered sugar and lemon juice that I drizzled on right out of the oven. Yummy!
