 *   Apples are to be washed and cored.  Shred the unpeeled apples for
 recipe. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into
 mixing bowl.
 
 Cut in shortening with pastry blender until fine crumbs form.  Combine egg
 and milk.  Add to dry ingredinets all at once, stirring just enough to
 moisten.  Stir in apples.  Spoon batter into paper-lined 2 1/2-inch
 muffin-pan cups, filling 2/3rds full.  Sprinkle with nut crunch topping.
 Bake in 375 degree oven 25 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve hot with
 butter and homemade jelly or jam.
 NUT CRUNCH TOPPING:
 Mix together 1/4 c brown sugar (packed), 1/4 c chopped pecans and 1/2 t
 ground cinnamon in small bowl.
