Happy Pumkin Muffins

with a wink and a smile...

These happy faces were a sheer accident.  Note those adorned with chocolate chips for the kids smile with glee, while the adult walnut cranberry are just muffins, nuts!

 Pumpkin Muffins
adult and kid version  
from: The American's Test Kitchen
Family Cookbook

chocolate chips

adult version you choose the amount
raw walnuts toasted
dried cranberries

~ set oven to 350 degrees

~ mix pumpkin, sugar, melted butter, eggs and vanilla in another large bowl until frothy.
~ GENTLY fold in pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients using a rubber spatula until just combined (over mixing will cause gluten to form and brick muffins)

~ add more batter to cover and sprinkle some of you add in on top
~ bake on middle rack about 25 minutes
