Prepping everything from pumpkin pies to party platters.

Here's a new pumpkin recipe I tried out this year and it was a quite yummy so I thought I'd share.

Pumpkin Muffins

3/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. butter or margarine
1/4 c. molasses
1 egg, beaten
1 c. pumpkin mash
1 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. pecans or raisins (optional - I used pecans)

Preheat oven to 350 F (177 C).

Combine sugar, butter and molasses and beat well. Add egg and pumpkin mash, beating until smooth. Stir together remaining ingredients (batter may be lumpy).

Lightly grease muffin tins. Fill each cup half full of batter. Optional: Add a whole pecan nut to the top for decorational purposes. Bake for 20 mins. or until toothpick teaster comes out clean when inserted into muffin center.

I found that using a normal-sized muffin tin and generous amounts of batter in each cup, I got about a 1.5 dozen muffins from this recipe. They also stayed super moist - yummy!

These sound yummy, I can't wait to try them! Since I work at Panera Bread, I know how popular a good pumpkin muffin/Muffie recipe can be.

Thanks for sharing!

I made a special effort to get all the ingredients to make this today. I dont have mini muffin tins but I figured it would be fine. Unfortunately, it wasnt until 40 minutes later and I couldnt figure out why the darn things were still so soft that I realized it said "1 cup" of pumpkin-- not "1 can." I wish I could read.

On the plus side, theyre still awesome. Just really gooey. I told James they were called spoon muffins because you had to eat them with a spoon. He believed it and hes happily eating them a spoon.
