Baked Sweet Puffs


This was a nice alternative to the fried doughnuts. While they are still not so healthy every little bit helps, right? Feel free to use any cute muffin pans you may have. I made a batch for my family and I using a heart muffin pan and I thought since I was already baking I would double the batch and give my husband some to take to work. I made those in muffin pans, filling them almost full them cutting the muffins in half, they were still large. The spices just make these puffs have that extra special something. He said no one at his work could stop eating them, so that made me happy.

1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
