Miniature French Breakfast Muffin Puffs

Print PrintShare with Friends


I adopted this recipe in August and have just made them today, 12 November 2005. They are easy to make and very easy to eat:) I have re-listed the ingredients to make it even easier to follow. I used a mix of butter & light flora table spread for the butter/shortening mix. I guess you could use all butter or all shortening if you prefer. I made 24 mini and 6 regular from the mixture. The original recipe said it made 48 mini but I am guessing that it would only make 36 so have added that in the 'makes' note.
