Another thing I want-- that has to do with fall...

Pumpkin Ginger Nut Muffins
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup pumpkin
1/3 cup melted butter
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup chopped toasted walnuts or pecans

Sprinkle top with a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon before baking or frost with killer icing of...(after they are baked of course)

1 tablespoon vanilla
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 stick butter
8 ounces of cream cheese

1 Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium sized bowl, sift together the flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda.
2 Mix the pumpkin, melted butter, eggs, 1/4 cup of water, and spices together, then combine with the dry ingredients, until just incorporated. Do not over-mix. Fold in nuts.
3 Divide mixture into a muffin tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Cool on a rack.
Makes 12 muffins.
(I would eat everything pumpkin flavored this time of year... ps, Panera, pumpkin muffins?)
