These muffins are absolute perfection and are a favorite of my family. My boys can not wait until it is time to make them.

 

Where do you get Pumpkin Purée?

Pumpkin puree can usually be found year round in the baking aisle of you local grocery store.

 

I have used both Libby’s canned pumpkin and store brand, and both seem to work great.

 

 

Just make sure you use pumpkin purée and not pumpkin pie filling. They are totally different and your muffins will not bake correctly if you use pie filling.
