Pumpkin muffins


The fall season has finally arrived and last week it was time for me to make our first batch of Pumpkin Muffins (not the last one either!).  The recipe comes from a small cookbook I got when a bunch of women from Brentwood Baptist Church in Brentwood, Tennessee came to uplift us – women – from Sequoia.   I still have the cookbook and so far it’s the only recipe I have ever made from it.  But boy are those muffins are delicious.  That recipe is the main reason why I still have the cookbook!

When I make these muffins, I have to be particularly careful to put some in the freezer because they would be gone quite rapidly.  If I would sell them in front of the house, they will probably sell within minutes.  LOL

Seriously, my kids just love them and they kept asking if they could get one when they are cooked.   I made one batch with chocolate chips and one batch with dried cranberries.

So I thought of sharing the recipe here… because they are simply mouth-watering.
