  4. Pour ½ cup granulated sugar into a medium container that has a lid to cover. Scoop dough out about 1 even teaspoon at a time and drop into the container in an even layer, working in batches.

  5. Then cover the container with a lid and shake to coat. Drop 6 sugar-coated dough balls into each muffin cup. Repeat this process until all muffin cups are filled.

  6. Whisk together 6 tablespoons melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon until well combined. Pour about 1 scant tablespoon brown sugar mixture evenly over each muffin.

  7. Place muffin tin on a cookie sheet and bake 18 to 19 minutes until golden. Allow to cool for 5 minutes in muffin tin before removing muffins.

  8. In a mixing bowl whisk together powdered sugar and milk until well blended. Pour mixture into a piping bag or Ziploc bag, snip a small tip off the end of the bag, and drizzle glaze over each muffin.
