1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup 2% milk

TOPPING:
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in lemon peel.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle a rounded 1/2 teaspoonful over each cupcake.

Bake 20-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: about 1-1/4 dozen.
