New recipe

This is a new recipe that I tried this morning. We all loved them!

Cinnamon Puffins Recipe

1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground nutmeg, divided
1/3 c. shortening
1 c. granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. melted butter or margarine
1 tsp. ground cinnamon, divided

Combine flour, baking powder, salt and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg; set aside. In another bowl, beat shortening, 1/2 cup sugar, egg and vanilla until well blended. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture; beat in the milk until smooth. Fill each cup of a lightly greased 12 cup muffin tin two-thirds full with the batter. Bake at 350° for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Melt butter in a small saucepan. In a small bowl combine 1/2 cup sugar, the 1 teaspoon cinnamon and remaining 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. While puffins are warm, dip each one in butter, then in sugar mixture coating thoroughly. Store in airtight container.
