The Best Pumpkin Muffins

Have you heard that the Pumpkin crop is low this year?

Truthfully, I hadn’t until I went to 2 different grocery stores and both were sold out of 100% pumpkin puree I had my heart set on. The young store clerk clued me in to this devastating information and so, next time Mom and I ran into inventory of pumpkin puree, we bought it up! Just in case. Tis the season, you know.

So, all that to say, with your limited supply of canned 100% pumpkin puree, you must be selective which dishes you create so as to savor the flavors of the season most completely. And this one is most definitely one of them. Delicious, tender, moist, and incredibly flavorful Pumpkin Muffins. You won’t be able to stop at simply one.
