Canned pumpkin puree adds a bit of subtle flavor to these muffins, but more important, it also makes the muffins ultramoist.
Enjoy this chewy and intensely flavored jerky as a snack or use to finish dishes with beautiful color and pumpkin flavor.
The caramelization makes these an addictive snack as well as a crunchy addition to soups, frostings, and salads.
Pie does not get better than this. Reducing and concentrating the juices of the apples make it necessary to use only about half the usual amount of thickener, resulting in a purer apple flavor, a juicy filling, and a crisp bottom crust. Make apple pie in the fall, at the height of the apple season, or whenever you have the yearning.
