count down to Thanksgiving #10- pumpkin patch muffins...

since our family usually eats at like 2ish on Thanksgiving Day, i don't like to eat a big breakfast.  but i can't completely wait til then to eat.  So these are an easy fun & light little breakfast.  my mom made them all the time when we were growing up & it brings back fun memories!  Maybe they can become a tradition at your house.

{pumpkin patch muffins}

{super yummy with honey butter}

3 cups flour

1 cup sugar

4 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1 cup milk

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, pumpkin spice & nutmeg.  Add sugar & mix.  Stir in milk, butter & vanilla.  Mix just until moistened.  Fold in canned pumpkin.
