Did I already post about pumpkin muffins? I could have sworn I did, but I went back through my archives and couldn't find the post. So, if I already shared this, just ignore it. These photos are from the first time, but I liked them so much I made 2 batches.
I get really nervous when I can't find pumpkin at the grocery store. I FINALLY found some. I mainly wanted that cute can--isn't that a great pumpkin illustration?
I made a batch of knockoff Starbucks pumpkin muffins...here is the recipe.
I think it really helps to cut the cream cheese down the middle so it's shaped like 2 sticks of butter. Then, I put it in the freezer for about an hour. It's much easier to slice later that way.
You know, I'm thinking I remember why I didn't post this. My friend Vanessa had a lovely post about baking right around the same time and I didn't want to seem like I was copying. Nothing's worse than a copy cat. Have I mentioned that wretched lady is totally ripping off Vanessa's work again? Good grief! It's just ridiculous. Back to the baking, though-----everyone owns cinnamon and flour and a whisk, so I'm going to go ahead and post about my muffins. They're not my muffins, I already said! Still, I ate them. That made them feel like mine.
I didn't put the topping on them like they had in the recipe, but this was sweet enough for me.
I'm making these! (after I can salsa which might take awhile) Where did you find a bag of cardamom? (it looks like it might be from India) I started buying the little Tone's brand because it was $11.00 for a teeny bottle of name brand.
Re: Miss Copycat - First of all, her toenails are dirty in her foot photo! and secondly, those "dolls" are homely...

I found my can of pumpkin at Whole Foods and it took a lot of hunting around to find. Of course, I was looking way back in June when I had to have this pumpkin dessert...fall was a monkey on my back then. I bought extra and I have the can facing the opening of the pantry cause I too love that little pumpkin pic.
Those muffins look super good!!
Love your blog!!!
