Deneece Gursky


It's a dreary day and my tv isnt working so I decided to play in the kitchen. Spiced pumpkin muffins with a brown sugar and cinnamon layer inside and topped off with a mapley glaze. (My son is with his dad today and i wanted to surpris him with something pumpkin when he got home. Thea got me on that kick lol. Since I didnt have chocolate chips to make her yummy recipe I opted for these : )
