I'm going to keep going on the Fall foods! Have to take advantage of them while I can! Now for a little pumpkin spice muffins with cream cheese frosting. Recipe from The Pioneer Woman. Seriously so yummy and addicting!


1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Topping on Muffin:

2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


1/4 cup softened butter
4 ounces, weight cream cheese
1/2 pound powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 12 muffin tins.

Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Cut in butter with two knives or a pastry blender until it is fully incorporated.

 In a separate bowl, mix together pumpkin, evaporated milk, egg, and vanilla. Pour pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture. Fold gently until mixture is just combined.

Pour into a greased muffin pan. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar-nutmeg mixture over the top of each unbaked muffin.

Bake for 25 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes, 

 Ice with cream cheese frosting.

To make the frosting, mix all ingredients on high until soft and whipped. Spread onto cooled muffins.

There ya go!
