This was a favorite recipe of mine growing up. Now, I continue to make them for my husband and I. These muffins are easy to make, and quite tasty.

The entire family LOVES these. Recipe is wrong. Do *not* sift the 1/2 cup sugar in with the dry ingredients. Make sure it gets left out to cream with the shortening. These are moist and delicious and YUMMMMMMMY!

Instead of shortening, I used butter. I also used whole wheat white flour and buttermilk. When dropping them into the mini muffin tins, I used my small cookie scoop not only to make uniform sized muffins but it was just easier to make just the right amount for each muffin cup. I also used butter for the "dip" part, too. My family basically had these gone in a matter of seconds. Next time, I'll double the recipe and I think I'll add a little more spice when I make it and maybe some vanilla or maple flavoring to the "puff" part. NOTE: When you make these, be sure to watch them carefully as you reach the end of baking time. Mine were a bit overdone.

something's off with the sugar - recipe calls for 1/2c sugar which in step 2 is supposed to be added to the flour; and then you're supposed to cream sugar and shortening together. but you've already put the sugar into the flour -- so i dont know where the error is
