Summer is winding down. I’m always a little sad when Summer ends. It’s always such a fun time, with the kids home from school, and the endless nights of bonfires and s’mores. But, alas, all good things must come to an end, and we must finish up our Summertime adventures in order to look forward to Fall.
Although our Summer has been so much fun, it has been SO HOT here, that I’m actually excited for the cooler weather of Fall to move in. I always love Fall, and the cute decorations that come with it. But one of my favorite things about Fall is the harvest. I love when our garden has reached it’s full potential, and we have tomato sandwiches for every meal. And especially here in Utah, the Apples are just gorgeous in the Fall.
So, besides making Applesauce, I wanted to share with you, one of my favorite recipes for using those delicious apples up.
Last year, my sweet neighbor brought over some of the most amazing muffins. My husband ate every. single. one. Seriously. And that is so unlike him, because he’s usually pretty good about sharing. So I knew they must be good, although I didn’t get a chance to try one.
Luckily, I was able to get my hands on the recipe and recreate the magic for the rest of us.
My whole family loved these muffins. They are so soft and moist on the inside with a sweet. crispy top. They have the incredible combination of pumpkin and apple, but it’s not too overbearing.
Just look at the top of that muffin! It’s just gorgeous! And they taste as good as they look.
Yes, we use princess baking cups around here. Makes everything sweeter.
And really, the recipe isn’t too hard. It’s one of those go to recipes you can throw together on a crisp, fall morning. And while you’re baking, take some over to your neighbors. I guarantee they’ll think you’re pretty cool.

These muffins excite me because it’s almost fall! 🙂 I love cooking with pumpkin in the fall; it’s so homely and comforting! 🙂 And I especially love the addition of the apple! While I’m here commenting, I’d like to invite you to come party with us at Tasty Tuesdays!
