French Breakfast Muffins

3 C. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 C. sugar
2/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 C. milk
1 C. butter
1 & 1/2 cup sugar, divided
3 tsp. cinnamon

Lightly grease 12 muffin cups. Stir together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon or nutmeg. Set aside. In a separate bowl, cream together 1 C. sugar and the shortening, then add eggs; mix well. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition. Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden. In a bowl melt butter. In a separate bowl combine remaining sugar and cinnamon. Dip baked muffins in butter, coating thoroughly and then coat with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
