Glazed Pumpkin Muffins


Pumpkin Muffins

1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup pumpkin
Coating:
1 stick of butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 sup sugar


In a small mixing bowl, beat shortening, brown sugar and egg until smooth. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice; add to the sugar mixture alternately with pumpkin. Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full (don't use muffin liners). Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.

One Options is to roll the warm muffins in butter, then in cinnamon-sugar
Coating:
1 stick of butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 sup sugar
serve immediately

My favorite option is to dip each muffin in a butter cream glaze
I just melt 2 tbl of butter and add powdered sugar(approx. 1 1/2 cups) until it is cookie dough consistency I then thin it with warm milk....... it tastes really good.

Yield: 1 dozen
