Bring up edges to enclose mixture. Pinch edges to seal. Place seam-side down in an ungreased muffin cups. Brush tops with butter, sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. With a sharp knife, cut an X on top of each. Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
