French Breakfast Puffs

Recipe courtesy Ree Drummond Yield:12 puffs

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2/3 cup shortening

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup whole milk

  • Coating

  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Lightly grease 12 muffin cups.

  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Set aside.

  • In a separate large bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening. Add the eggs and mix again. Alternate adding one-third of the flour mixture and one-third of the milk to the creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.

  • Fill the muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and set aside.

  • To make the coating, melt the butter in a bowl or glass pan. In a separate container, combine the sugar and cinnamon.

  • Dip the warm muffins in the butter, coating thoroughly.

  • Then roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Don’t be afraid to really coat ‘em up. Let the kids help!
