Expert Tips

  • Toss 2 tablespoons finely chopped nuts into the cinnamon-sugar mixture for Nutty French Breakfast Puffs.

    Or make Baked Mini Donut Holes. Prepare the recipe as directed, except divide the dough among 24 greased mini muffin cups, 2x3/4 inch, and bake 11 to 13 minutes.
  • Make more cinnamon-sugar mixture than you'll need, and store the rest to use later. Try it sprinkled on buttered toast or stirred into cooked rice.
