French Breakfast Puffs

Yesterday I was knee-deep in drooling over other people's blogs. I really need to fix up this old place, and keep it updated! (a resolution for the New Year?...) Anyway, I stumbled upon this amazing recipe and knew it needed to be tested in my own kitchen that very day. Here she all her glutenous wonder. (I'm gluten-free, but the rest of the family is what I like to call "glutenous"!) I was drooling over these in the to create a GF alternative. Everyone enjoyed them, so try them for yourself!

Taken from The Pioneer Woman Cooks. She's a breath of fresh air if you hadn't visited her website before....makes me laugh all the time! Here is the recipe on her site. All photos are property of The Pioneer Woman.
I took the liberty of making a cute little recipe card so you can just print it out and add it to your box! It's formatted for 4x6 photo paper, so feel free to print it out like a photo! Click HERE to download a copy for yourself!
