1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup apples, finely chopped
2/3 cup sharp cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
3/4 cup milk
12 to 15 thin slices unpeeled red apples
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup cinnamon sugar


Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beat well after each addition. Mix and sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into shortening mixture. Stir in oats, apples, cheese, and pecans; mix well. Add milk gradually, stirring only to moisten other ingredients.

Fill well-greased muffin pan two-thirds full. Dip apple slices first in melted butter, then in cinnamon-sugar. Press one slice into batter in each muffin cup. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon-sugar. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 25 minutes.

Makes: 12 muffins
