Pumpkin Muffins

Author Notes: Every Fall my family asks me to make pumpkin muffins, or pie or cheesecake, basically anything pumpkin! These muffins are a repeat in my family that signal autumn to me. Usually I will roast a pumpkin for this recipe, but they aren't exactly in season just yet.Rebecca Morales
