These are great and even better when served with something….like a crab and two cheese omelette for example.
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon blended
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl cream together the shortening, sugar and egg until fluffy.
In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients and blend together. Add to the creamed mixture alternating with the milk. Fill a greased muffin tin two-thirds full and bake for 20-23 minutes until golden brown. Place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes to brown the top.
Remove puffs immediately and while still hot, roll in the melted butter and then in the sugar and cinnamon mix.
This makes 12-15 medium puffs or 7-9 large ones.
