French Pastry Puffs

At our first get together Carissa asked if we liked to cook or bake? At the time I didn't really get the question. Now that I've been on the journey I know that I love baking and I cook so we have something to eat. My latest baking adventure started at 10pm when I realized I needed to take munchies to Bible study in the morning. I went through both cookbooks to realize I only had a little of this and none of that in my pantry. I did have all of the ingredients for the French Pastry Puffs, or at least that's what I thought. I ended up not having the nutmeg. I'm still in awe that it wasn't in my spice wheel. Since I didn't have it I added cinnamon. I'm not sure but I'm guessing that makes them less French?! Anyway, they weren't that great. They weren't that bad. They were good just not GREAT. If I'm making homemade, I want a little more WOW to them. I'm wondering if the missing nutmeg was the WOW. Anyone know? Regardless, I saved 3 and took the other 15 regular size muffins to Bible study and they were all gone and a few of the older ladies asked for the recipe. Guess that's a good sign?

The Nutmeg is what the wow factor was for me. :)

It doesn't seem to me that there would be too much difference between the nutmeg and the cinnamon. Not enough to make it good or bad anyway...I would guess the cinnamon to have been a fine substitute. But I haven't made them. I did like your picture!
