I must share this recipe I found on Pinterest! I let my husband and youngest child make these together and had high hopes for their end product. Oh boy was I pleasantly surprised by the outcome, these donut holes are delicious and have now become my new ‘go-to’ for church bake sales and pot-luck party’s! Thank you to Emilie for posting this recipe that she found in The Taste Of Home Magazine!

- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix flour, crushed cereal, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and stir just until moistened. Roll dough into approximately 2 1/2 dozen 1 inch balls. Mix cinnamon and remaining sugar in a small bowl. Drop balls into melted butter and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Place balls onto greased 8 or 9 inch round pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool for a few minutes in pan on wire rack before removing.
