French Breakfast Puffs

I have been making these DELICIOUS French Breakfast Puffs for YEARS! My family just LOVES them! The other day while chatting with Paula over at "Summ Day, Summ Way" and she asked me if I would post the recipe so here you go, Paula.....this one's for YOU!

For this recipe, you will need:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

Lightly grease 12 muffin cups; set aside. Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg; set aside. In mixer bowl, cream together 1/2 cup sgar, the shortening, and egg. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.

Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake in 350*F oven for 20-25 minutes, or till golden. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Remove muffins from oven; immediately dip in melted butter or margarine, then in cinnamon-sugar mixture till coated. Serve warm and ENJOY!!

Yield: 112 muffins
OMGosh....that should read 12 muffins NOT 112 ROFLOL!!
