Recipe Share- French Breakfast Puffs

Okay, these are SO good. I found this recipe on my friend, Amy's Frosted Bake Shop blog. Check her out! Let me just say that if Amy has blogged about it, with yummy pictures and all, it is a recipe you'll want to try. This quickly became an instant favorite at our house.

We enjoyed FHE {family home evening} tonight. Tanner gave the lesson, the whole family tried to sing a Primary song w/out ruining it & I made the treats. You guessed it, we enjoyed these French Breakfast Puffs as our FHE treats. The leftovers are being saved for tomorrow's breakfast. That's how yummy they are.

French Breakfast Puffs

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
6 tbls. melted butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease your muffin pans. I made 24 mini-muffins, but you could make regular muffins instead.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening. Add the egg and mix well. Stir the flour mixture into the shortening mixture alternately with the milk.

Spoon the mixture into your muffin pan. Bake the muffins for approximately 15 minutes, or until they are golden on top and a toothpick comes out clean. Just watch your oven.

While the muffins are baking, melt the butter in a bowl. In a separate bowl combine the sugar and cinnamon for the topping. When the muffins are done baking, remove them from the pan and immediately dip them into the butter...
and then into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

I had this exact recipe on my list to try so I will for sure make them now. The lady I got the recipe from added 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and 1/2 c. pumpkin. I think I'll have to make both!
