Why I Love This Recipe

These muffins are moist and very tasty. You can use either fresh or frozen strawberries. The sugared almonds give them a nice crunchy topping. They are great for a mid-morning snack with a friend.


Ingredients You'll Need

1-1/4 cups sliced almonds, divided
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup buttermilk
1-1/4 cups fresh strawberries, chopped


Directions

In a bowl, combine 1 cup almonds and egg white. Add 1/2 cup sugar; toss to coat. Spoon into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 F. for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. stirring occasionally.


In a large mixing bowl, cream shorting, butter and remaining sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extracts. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Fold in the strawberries and remaining almonds.


Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Sprinkle with sugared almonds. Bake at 350 F. for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from the pans to wire racks.


Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
