Bake Cookies Day and Another "Elf" Warning

Hi my Pals, I am following our Pal Sweet William http://sweetwilliamthescot.blogspot.com/  who showed me
 about a fun blog hop

Daily Daisy Dog Blog is hosting "Bake Cookies Day"!!

My Mommy and I love to bake so here goes:

French Breakfast Puffs

1 and 1/2 cups flour
1 and 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

For topping after baking

1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
6 TBSP. melted butter or margarine(recommend butter)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or 24 mini muffins(we use mini muffins)
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, cream together 1/2 cup sugar and shortening. Beat in egg. Stir flour mixture into shortening mixture alternately with milk. Beat well. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes(10 to 15 for mini's). While muffins are baking, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
  4. Remove muffins from oven and muffin pan. Immediately, dip the tops of the muffins into the melted margarine, then into the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Repeat with each muffin, until all muffin tops are covered. Serve warm.

I know they are not exactly cookies, but they are delicious and I hope you like them.

Puddles and Gussie and all others who have "elf" troubles please be careful about eating cookies.

I fear "elf" poop is very toxic and can cause hallucinations.

Loveys Sasha

OH DEAR ME Sasha your elf is in need of some discipline. I expect Santa will ban him from leaving the North Pole next year.

Thank you and your mom so very much for saying prayers for my BIL.
We are making an announcement about him tomorrow...however, since we are BFFFs I'll tell you. He is being released from Rehab tomorrow to go home. Mom says that will do him a ton of good to be home. Lots of hugs
Madi your bfff
