Just a little more pumpkin please!

Even though we are moving into the tail end of winter, the leaves are falling, and the chill is no longer comforting after the hot summer, but now makes you wear your weight in clothing, I am STILL craving pumpkin. Some of you may be sick of it after the holidays but I keep cravings. So I made these pumpkin muffins

They sat in my kitchen overnight and if I had not put a "Do Not Eat" sign in front of them, I'm certain my roommates would have devoured them. But they were a special gift for my boyfriend. However, I made the mistake of bringing them to his parents house and soon learned that out of the eleven I made (well I ate one of course) he only ate ONE! poor guy...

Anyways enjoy!
