Are You Drowning in Pumpkin Puree? ;-)

how do you fix a broken pumpkin?

I JUST PUMPKIN, ANYTHING (pies, cookies, soups, muffins)… ! 😉

And this time of year, it seems like there are pumpkins and pumpkin recipes everywhere.

Last week, I was looking for a new recipe for a muffin that would include not only pumpkin, but dried cranberries and pecans too.

I found this oh so yummy one over at the Betty Crocker site for:

 Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins   (click for recipe)

They turned out great. A lovely dense but moist texture, flavorful and  colorful too.

A couple of tweaks:

I did cut back a bit on the sugar, used unbleached flour and added a dash of cloves and nutmeg to the dry mix too.

Any fav pumpkin recipes (sweet or savory) to share? Please do. IMO, there’s no such thing as too much pumpkin….and it’s so good for us too!

Happy Cooking and Baking! 🙂
