Apple Cheese Muffins

½ c. shortening

½ c. Cox Honeyland's Apple Pecan Creamed Honey

2 eggs

1 ½ c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1 ½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

¾ c. quick oatmeal

1 c. apple, chopped fine

2/3 c. sharp cheddar cheese, coarsely grated

½ c. pecans, chopped

½ c. milk

12 to 15 slices unpeeled apple

Butter or margarine, melted

Cream shortening and honey. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift dry ingredients and stir into the shortening mixture. Stir in oats, apples, cheese, and pecans. Mix well. Add milk gradually, stirring only to moisten other ingredients. Fill well-greased muffin pans 2/3 full. Dip apple slices first in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar. Press one slice into batter in each muffin. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 375 °F for 25 minutes.
