Black Tea Cheese Puffs

These puffs are a cross between muffins and scones. They contain neither eggs nor added fat, but they actually rose and came out rather beautiful! If you use matcha green tea, you could make these for St. Patrick’s Day! They’d be awesome next to a traditional Corned Beef Dinner!
