Pumpkin Pecan Crumb Topped Muffins


Yum

Hot from the oven, bursting with the aromas of fall, these muffins will bring comfort to your soul! - Slice of Southern

Have extra cans of pumpkin?

I'll show you what to do with it.  I always seem to have either an open can or extra cans of pumpkins around.  One good way to save that pumpkin is to portion it into muffin tins and freeze them.  Then you can take out a couple, thaw them and use them all winter in recipes.  Pumpkin smoothie anyone?

Another way is to make my fabulous Pumpkin Pecan Crumb Topped Muffins.  Hot from the oven, bursting with the aromas of fall, these muffins will bring comfort to your soul!  Filled with pumpkin, and spices such cinnamon, ginger, and cloves, and topped with a sugary crumble, you will be dancing a jig when you bite into these tender muffins.

PUMPKIN PECAN CRUMB TOPPED MUFFINS

Perfect for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning, or the day after!

MAKE AHEAD!  You can make these ahead and just reheat them in the oven covered in foil, at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  How simple is that?  Or you can freeze any leftovers to pull out for a quick breakfast on the run during winter.

Any way you serve these up they are a winner!
Enjoy!








Pumpkin Pecan Crumb Topped Muffins
Makes 6
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup 2% milk
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Crumb topping:
3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
3 Tablespoons finely chopped pecans
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons cold butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl add flour, sugars, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Whisk to blend.  Add the egg, pumpkin, milk, oil, and vanilla.  Stir together just until combined.  Fold in chopped nuts.

In a small bowl add all crumb topping ingredients. Cut in butter with 2 forks or using your hands until the mixture is crumbly.

Using a scoop, fill muffin tins, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, almost all the way full.  Top with crumb topping.

Bake 20 minutes until tops are golden brown.  Allow to cool in the pan 10 minutes, then remove from pan.  Serve warm.

Thanksgiving Side Dishes: 10 Exciting New Choices


Yum



Need new exciting side dishes for your Thanksgiving Menu?  I've got 10 to share. - Slice of Southern


One of the things I love about Thanksgiving are the traditions.  Food being one of them we have family favorites that HAVE to be made every year otherwise it just wouldn't be Thanksgiving.  One of those dishes is only made that one time of year, so we all wait with baited breath for that one dish!


Another thing I love about Thanksgiving is the ability to try NEW side dishes.  Since there are so many side dishes included with this meal I take the opportunity to throw one or two new dishes along with our standards.  These can be rotated out each year with more new recipes, and this keeps our menu interesting and fresh.


THANKSGIVING SIDE DISHES: 10 EXCITING NEW CHOICES


I'm happy to share with you some of the new side dishes that I've made over the years that have been a hit with the family and guests.  Try out some of these this year in addition to your standard menu.  Who knows, you might find a new favorite tradition!


Happy Thanksgiving!

Quick and Decadent Apple Butter Crescent Rolls

Makes 8

1 can of refrigerated crescent rolls (I used Pillsbury)
4 T of apple butter, homemade or jarred (I use this one


Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Unroll crescent rolls and separate each triangle.  Brush apple butter over each triangle.  You can use more or less to your taste. (Make sure not to use too much or it will ooze out!)  Roll up starting from the wide end and creating a crescent roll.

Place on a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Bake 8-10 minutes until golden brown.  Serve hot.
