French Breakfast Puffs
This morning I got up and decided to make everyone's favorite for breakfast. I should have thought about blogging about it then, and take pictures and all, but, oh well.... Actually, it's a pretty easy recipe.
First you mix together 1/3 cup soft shortening, 1/2 cup sugar and one egg together (with a beater) and set aside.
Then you mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 1/2 t baking power, 1/2 t salt and 1/4 tsp nutmeg in a small bowl.
Measure 1/2 cup milk.
Alternately, stir in the milk and flour mixture a little at a time...milk, then flour, milk, flour, until all ingredients are mixed together really well.
Fill greased muffin tins about 2/3 full and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes (until golden).
Here comes the fun part....
Just before the muffins are done, melt about 6 T or more of butter in one bowl, and in another bowl mix about 1/2 cup sugar and 1 t cinnamon.
As soon as you take the muffins out of the oven carefully remove them from the tins. Then dredge them in the butter, then cover them with the cinnamon and sugar and serve warm.
Sometimes, I have to melt more butter and/or make more cinnamon and sugar. But let me tell you.....These things are the best!!!!!! I don't make them too often because they are go good and one could really make themselves sick by eating too many, not to mention putting on a few LB's. But they are worth it..........every once in awhile....
