Pumpkin Time Is Here!

Well, it’s that time of year everyone….pumpkin time.  Pumpkin coffee, pumpkin creamer, pumpkin cream cheese, pumpkin muffins, and the list goes on and on and on.


So, here are some recipes for different pumpkin eats/drinks/scrubs that I really enjoy…

Pumpkin Muffins

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups granulated sugar
1 can (15 ounces) LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
4 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water or orange juice


PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Paper-line or grease 30 muffin cups.

COMBINE flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Combine sugar, pumpkin, eggs, oil, and juice in large mixer bowl; beat until just blended. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture; stir just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling 3/4 full.

BAKE for 25 to 30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store muffins in a covered container or resealable plastic bags.

Coffee with Pumpkin Creamer

So, if you haven’t figured it out yet, I LOVE PUMPKIN (LOL)!  With that being said why would I leave out the creamer that I use in my coffee?  My favorite kind of creamer is Coffee Mate.

Now, there are more things you can do with the creamer besides put it in your coffee.  I love to use it in my pancake batter (instead of the milk) to give it a wonderful pumpkin flavor. I love it!

You can also use it in your hot chocolate to make it creamy and tastes wonderfully pumpkin (yes – I just made up that word).

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread

This spread can also be used as a dip with fruit, vanilla wafers or anything else that you think would taste good with pumpkin.  I love using it on bagels for breakfast – why not start out your day on a good note?


18-ounce package cream cheese softened
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3/4 teaspoon vanilla


Beat all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. Makes 1-1/2 cups (24, 1-tablespoon servings).

 Pumpkin Hand Scrub

I know that a hand scrub is not anything that you can eat or drink, but I think it is something that not only feels great to your hands/body but it smells so good.

Well, I guess that’s enough pumpkin items for one post.  Don’t worry, I will be back with some more recipes all about pumpkin.
