Makes 18 servings

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

4 teaspoons baking powder

4 tablespoons vegetable shortening (I use Crisco )

pinch salt

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.
