Think Orange! Pumpkin Pie Muffins

I Heart Cooking Club

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. 



To see what others made with an orange-hued ingredient go here.

  1. Yum - these look fabulous. And I have come to love Ellie's recipes, even though I had never heard of her before I joined Eating with Ellie.

  2. Wonderful muffins! I've seen this recipe from one of her books, and thought that I would love to try it out one of these days. Eating it warm and freshly baked sounds so good!

  4. Definitely these meet the test of time and of a great recipe if you have been making them for so many years. Love the pumpkin seeds on top--pretty and a nice crunch. ;-)
