Cinnamononony Breakfast Bites
Why I Love This Recipe
I got this off of the Taste of Home website...and they are requested over and over and over again from my little ones! The name is Cinnamon Breakfast Bites...but my two little girls call them Cinnamononony Breakfast Bites. These are soo yummy you can't just have one. I don't use margarine...butter all the way baby.
Ingredients You'll Need

In a bowl, combine the flour, cereal, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until moistened. Shape into 1-in. balls. In a bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining sugar. Dip balls in butter, then roll in cinnamon-sugar. Arrange in a single layer in an 8-in. round baking pan.
