Mini cupcakes with cinnamon and sugar

Many thanks to Glorious Treats for this recipe! 
Cinnamon-Sugar Mini Cupcakes
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (or ground nutmeg)
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temp.
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk (any fat content)

For the coating-
6 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350*F.
Spray a mini muffin pan (I use a silicone one) with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter for a moment, then add the sugar and beat on medium speed until blended and creamy, about 1 minute.
Beat in the egg and vanilla, mixing until smooth and thick. 

With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture in three additions and the milk in two additions, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.  Mix just until the flour is incorporated and the batter looks smooth.

Scoop batter into mini muffin pan (a small cookie scoop works great).  This recipe makes about 18 cupcakes
