French Breakfast Puff
I found this recipe here: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/
This is THE BEST Recipe blog I have ever seen and I have not tried a recipe from here that I haven't liked. She is hilarious, amazingly talented and skinny... who can cook all of this food and still be skinny? She makes me sick actually b/c look at her photography part too...yep, sickening! hahaha and I bet she is really nice on top of all of this! Even more sickening...
Oh yeah, here is the reason we are here, to try these yummy little treats. I make these occasionally for my Young Women treats and they LOVE them. I like them, no love here, but they are really good. They are more like muffins coated in Cinnamon and sugar, not really puffy. But "French Breakfast Puffs" DOES sound better than Cinnamon coated muffins.
