What makes these morning muffins stand apart is the final step after baking when you moisten the tops with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Reviewer Lydia Misiura says, "I added a dash of vanilla to the wet mixture and used full-fat butter; this is a "French recipe after all". I spooned the butter on top instead of dipping because they were so tender they started falling apart."
