I found these on Pinterest via Oh My! Sugar High and had to give them a try since we all love donut holes.
They are so good and very easy to make.
The kids loved rolling them in the cinnamon and sugar.
1 1/3 cups flour
1 cup crisp rice cereal, crushed
2 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter-flavored shortening
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted
In a large bowl mix the flour, cereal, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt.
Cut in shortening until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
Stir in the milk just until moistened.
Shape into 1-inch balls.
In a small bowl combine the cinnamon and remaining sugar.
Dip balls in melted butter and then roll into the cinnamon and sugar.
Bake in single layer on cookie sheet at 425 F for 15-18 minutes.
