Celebrating October with the color orange–make an Ellie Krieger recipe featuring or including orange-hued ingredients. For this challenge I chose Pumpkin Pie Muffins I have been making these muffins since Ellie had a cooking show on the Food Network in 2006. It has been a while since I have made these and they were a welcomed Fall baked item.
My house smelled so good while these baked. My husband and I had one as soon as they came out of the oven. He said they needed raisins which would have been a nice addition. The pumpkin seeds added a nice textural crunch. These have stood the test of time and 9 years later they are still a winner in our house.
