Amaretto apple streussel cupcakes











This is my favorite type of muffin or cupcake, a little moist, tasty and natural elements such as almonds  apples or nuts.
These tender apple cupcakes with a sweet and cruchy and then with a powdered sugar glaze are delicious.
Besides Amaretto adds a special flavor.
 Something special and just for a cup of tea or coffee.

Enjoy!
