Fall is the BEST time of year for baking! And for giving away some fall love! If you've never been to any of the 200+ shopping sites from CSN Stores, you're in for a treat. In the market for some new bar furniture? Head on over! What about a new purse? They have some gorgeous ones. Or what about new bakeware? (oooooh, I do love me some Le Creuset...)
Mom and I are giving away a $55 (one time use) gift certificate from CSN Stores to one person who leaves a comment here on this blog, this post. After you've left your comment, go whip up these fabulous pumpkin muffins from Marsha (hi, mom) and while you're enjoying one with butter and hot coffee, take a look at all the stuff that CSN Stores has to offer!
1-1/3 cups granulated sugar 1/2 cup of butter 2 eggs 2 cups flour 4 tsp baking powder 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup of pumpkin 4 Tbsp of of heavy whipping cream, but you can use milk
Topping: 1/2 c. brown sugar, pecans
Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs and beat well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In yet another bowl, combine pumpkin and whipping cream or milk. Add flour mixture and pumpkin alternately to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition. Spoon into paper liners. Then combine about 1/2 c. of brown sugar and some chopped pecans. Top the muffins with as much as you want. Bake at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes, but make sure they are done.
Enjoy! (Don't forget the butter and hot coffee.)
GIVEAWAY WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON MONDAY! :)
