I’m one of those people who likes eggnog, especially around the Christmas season.  This year I got started a little early thanks to spotting pumpkin eggnog in the dairy case.  That I couldn’t resist and except for the calories, it’s a real treat!

A  bonus was the recipe for pumpkin spice muffins that is right on the carton.  Thinking they sounded pretty good, I gave the recipe a try.  Talk about yummy! For sure they will be on our Thanksgiving table.  If you can find pumpkin eggnog, you might like to add them to your menu as well, and in case there’s no recipe, here it is.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

2 1/3 c. flour

2 t. baking powder

1/4 t. salt

1 t. pumpkin spice

2 large eggs

1 c. brown sugar

1 c.  pumpkin eggnog

1/2 c. melted butter

1 t. vanilla

3/4 c. chopped pecans or walnuts

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and walnuts. 

In a medium mixing bowl, beat the eggs and brown sugar until well combined. Add the eggnog, butter, and vanilla. Blend well on low speed. 

Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture. Mix the wet and dry ingredients with a spoon until just combined. Do not over mix. The batter will be slightly lumpy. 

Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan and allow to cool.
