I tried these late this afternoon

I got this recipe off of the Pioneer Woman's blog today and thought I would try them. They got the thumbs up from the family. So another keeper to file.

French Breakfast Puffs

3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup sugar
2/3 cups shortening (Crisco) I used another brand
2 whole eggs
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 sticks of butter

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups. 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 mix 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 for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
In a bowl, melt 2 sticks butter. In a separate bowl combine remaining sugar and cinnamon. Dip baked muffins in butter and roll around till all coated then dip into the sugar/cinnamon mixture.

The recipe says it makes 12 but I got 18 and ended up melting another stick of butter to do all mine. Had very little butter left and a small amount of sugar/cinnamon mixture left.

Okay, I had my husband take 6 to my great aunts for them to have, DH, DS and I had 1 each and DD's BF had 1 or 2.
