Cheese muffins

I couldn't resist trying this recipe when I saw it here. It is so simple yet yummy. Little ones are going to love it and you can also pack it in their snack box. I got a cheesy smile back. Packed it to my cousin's place and got many more cheesy smiles there. That made my day. In the mother recipe she has added paprika. I love aroma of oregano and so decided to put it while mixing but forgot. Then finally sprinkled it on top as I couldn't abstain from using it.


Ingredients
  • All purpose flour - 1 cup
  • Baking powder - 1tsp
  • Grated cheese - 1/2 cup (used mozzarella)
  • Vegetable shortening - 4 tsp (I used Crisco)
  • Egg - 1
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Oregano - 1 tsp
  • Pepper powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp (reduce if you want it less salty)


Method
  • Sieve together all purpose flour, salt and baking powder
  • In a bowl combine together flour mix and vegetable shortening until you get bread crumbs like texture.
  • Add cheese (keep aside little to put on top). Combine.
  • Beat egg, oregano, pepper powder and milk. Add to flour mixture.
  • Grease muffin tin and pour into it. Top with grated cheese.
  •  Bake at 150 degrees for 10 minutes.
