French Breakfast Puffs

These are wonderful!  This is a recipe borrowed from The Pioneers Woman's Cookbook.  I LOVE this cookbook and can not wait for the second one to be out.  We're going to pick up a bunch of chickens tomorrow and the drive it is a long one and we have to leave early.  Having grumpy kids just makes it longer.

3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup sugar
2/3 cups shortening
2 eggs
1 cup milk

2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Combine flour, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg into a small bowl.

Combine sugar and shortening

Blend sugar and shortening.

Add two eggs to the sugar and shortening mix.  I also added the milk here as well.

Blend ingredients well.

Using a mixer blend one third of the flour mixture with the eggs, shortening mixture. Combine until all ingredients are blended together.  Add flour slowly to avoid a mess. :)

Using an ice cream scoop, level each scoop out filling the muffins cups two thirds full.  Place in oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Just before the puffs come out of the oven, melt the butter.

It melts easier if the butter is cut into chunks.

See.  That took less then 2 minutes to melt.

Add sugar into a separate bowl and add cinnamon.  When the puffs come out of the oven place on wire rack to cool just a few minutes.  You want to coat with butter first and then cover them in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Ree suggest the kids helping, Ha!!! Not in this house. :)

With this  particular puff, I added 2 tsp of Mango Honey to it to snaze it up for me.  I didn't need all the sugar coating.  It was really a good addition to Ree's recipe. 
And here is the finished product per The Pioneer Woman's original recipe.  They are a HUGE hit when I make them.

Ree also states in her book that you can completely let these cool and freeze them for another day.  Honestly, they are SO yummy there are never any left to freeze.
