Happy October!

October is my most favorite month, being my hubby's birthday and my birthday month, Halloween, and fall. First up, soon I will be doing a product review connected with bar stool (CSN Stores). It was a wonderful opportunity from Eileen again and I thank her and CSN Stores.

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Grease 12 regular-size muffin cups with shortening or line with paper baking cups.
  2. In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Stir in pumpkin, oil, eggs, cranberries and pecans just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. (I used an ice cream scoop to fill) Sprinkle coarse sugar evenly over batter in each cup.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan to cooling rack. Serve warm.
Had some leftover mix, so made a little loaf!

These were really tasty with some pumpkin butter on them! Hugs!
