French Breakfast Puffs

Oh. My. Goodness. This is a recipe from Pioneer Woman and just in case you missed it I had to post it here. These are beyond delicious. Really. I thought they'd be good and then I ate one and about passed out. Food does that to me. Keep in mind that these have 2 cubes of butter and over 2 cups of sugar so how could they be anything short of heavenly?

Here's her words, but for the great pictures and more commentary you should just go to the site (there's a link on the side).

French Breakfast Puffs
3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I used cinnamon as I'm not a nutmeg fan)
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup shortening (Crisco)
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 sticks butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups. Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Set aside. Pray. In a different bowl, cream together 1 cup sugar and shortening, then add eggs and mix. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition. Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until golden. In a bowl, melt 2 sticks butter. In a separate bowl combine remaining sugar and cinnamon. Dip baked muffins in butter, coating thoroughly, then coat with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Eat. Faint.
