"P" is for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
Aside from eating Pepperoni Pizza, Pancakes, Pretzels, Pickles, Mashed Potatoes, Potato Chips, Chicken Pot Pie and Popcorn this week, we had the pleasure of delivering these Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins to a dear lady from church, Priscilla. (and there are many "P" foods we didn't get to...what a fun letter!)
I adore Priscilla. She's a grandmother of 14 and spends much of her time caring for her husband, who isn't well....and she is a faithful worker in our 3-year old nursery at church for two months out of every year. She's just the sweetest lady....so it was really fun to get to bless her with a treat this week.
We delivered the muffins to her on Pink Paper Plates, and she in turn gave the children Peppermint candy canes. Such fun!
These muffins are delicious, worth the extra effort and time it takes to make them. The recipe makes a big batch - it said it yielded 24 muffins, but I had enough batter left over to make 24 mini-muffins without the filling. I even had leftover topping after that!
