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!
