The Ideal Saturday Morning

This morning after my husband went to work and I got up and got to work myself.  I did a quick house cleaning, then made a special breakfast - a non-fat mocha coffee and French Breakfast Puffs.  This is the recipe I've had since 7th grade home-ec, and it's always been for special times. What a way to begin the day - a clean(ish) house, a good book, a delicious hot drink, and a favorite treat.  Here's the recipe:

French Breakfast Puffs
1/3 c. shortening
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Cream sugar and shortening.  Add egg.  Sift dry ingredients together.  Add to creamed mixture alternately with 1/2 c. milk.  Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.  Immediately roll in 1 stick melted butter and then in a mixture of 1/2 c. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon.
