I worked hard on this recipe. When I received the original it was ok but I really wanted this one to be good, not just good but Great! It just had so many possibilities. So a week and several modifications later the wait was over. Baby, it was worth it! This has to be my favorite sweet for breakfast. With so many options for filling, the possibilities are endless.. from tart and tangy strawberry rhubarb to rich chocolaty chip and don't forget streusel with pecans... or pineapple coconut.. or.. fresh peach.. or ...well, you get the picture... and even better? sshhhh don't tell.... it's really simple.

Filling such as jam, chocolate chips, fruit, nuts, etc...
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a seperate bowl add melted butter eggs and milk. Whip to combine. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients all at once. With rubber spatula mix together until very soft dough forms. Divide dough into 16 pieces and roll into balls. Flatten 8 and top with 1-2 TBS filling of your choice. (jam, streusel, berries,etc...) flatten each remaining ball and place on top of filling. Seal edges.
