French Breakfast Puffs...

Now that I'm done teaching in the college I'm finding a little more time to do the things that I really enjoy doing: like trying out new recipes! So before school the other morning I put together a recipe from Pioneer Woman, one of my favorite cooks. You might notice a trend with many of the recipes I try: they're somehow connected to her.

These little balls of cinnamon/sugar goodness were a huge hit among the teachers and church staff. In fact my husband remarked he like me to make these Christmas morning! So let me share this delectable, and super easy, recipe with you. For step by step instructions in pictures along with the printable link simply go HERE. Enjoy!!
French Breakfast Puffs

What You Will Need:
3 cups Flour
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1 cup Sugar
2/3 cups Shortening
2 whole Eggs
1 cup Milk
1-1/2 cup Sugar
3 teaspoons Cinnamon
2 stick Butter

What You Will Do:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups. (Mine actually made 18!!)
  • In a large bowl stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  • In a different bowl, cream together 1 cup sugar and shortening. Then add eggs and mis again. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.
  • Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
