Not chocolate

Last night I made Pumpkin Butterscotch muffins for our Junior Bible Quiz party.

After I thought I was all done baking, Andrew asked me if I was now making chocolate muffins.....
because this is what you get when you forget to turn on the timer and you have a STUFFY nose. : )

~Not chocolate I'm afraid.

This the time of year for all things pumpkin, so give them a try. They are fabulous. They are best made as mini muffins since they are pretty rich.

Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

1 stick of butter
1 3/4 cups of flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 can (16 oz) canned pumpkin
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 bag of butterscotch chips

Melt butter in bowl and set aside to cool. In large bowl add all dry ingredients and stir thoroughly. Add pumpkin, eggs and vanilla to melted butter and stir. Add wet ingredients to dry. Don't over mix. Spray muffin tin. Stir in butterscotch chips. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill tins 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 15 min. Makes 40 mini muffins.

Here's how they look when they haven't been left in the oven for over an hour. ; )

And speaking of Junior Bible Quiz we had our first match of the year on Saturday. My hubby and I are coaching a team for the first time. It was great fun!

And congrats to Andrew who came in 10th place! Very exciting.

Congratulations Andrew!

I love the "chocolate" muffins. That is a funny one. Stuffy nose! You have me laughing.

And I am with you on the cool temps. We turned our air off, and now I am being stubborn and not turning it back on.

And I'm hot.
