Makes 18 servings
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons vegetable shortening (I use Crisco )
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups maple syrup
1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 350º F.
In a stand mixer combine the flour, milk, baking powder, vegetable shortening, salt and cinnamon. Mix on low until all incorporated and dough forms. Scrape sides of bowl as needed.
With a large scoop, scoop dough into even balls and place in a 9 x 13 glass dish.
Pour maple syrup over the balls of dough, then pour the water over the syrup.
Bake at 350º F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the dough comes out clean.
