Sweater Weather

Hello October

I don't know about you, but just the sound of October makes me want to bust out some boots, pumpkin EVERYTHING, throw on a gorgeous sweater, and a beanie. October is my absolute favorite month in New York City because of the smell, the weather change, and cute new fashions. When in Florida during October, I love how finally were not dying in 100 plus degree weather, I love the smell of pumpkin spice & pumpkin patches, and I love trick or treaters coming to the doors.
Below is one of recipe I will be trying out during this month. Hello Pumpkin Muffins and chocolate chips in them.....ummm what could be better.
Let me know if you try these out.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins - perfectly moist muffins full of pumpkin flavor and dotted with chocolate chips.
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin puree
  • 1-1/2 cups canola oil
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (see Note for substitution)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place paper liners in a regular sized muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, pumpkin and oil until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt; Add flour mixture slowly to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths to almost all the way full.
  3. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Do not overbake. It makes all the difference between a good and a great muffin. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Makes 2 dozen muffins.
