Pumpkin Muffin Tops

Super soft pumpkin cookies that taste like a muffin top. Not too sweet, so it is a perfect breakfast recipe.

Is it just me, or do you think the tops of muffins are the best part?

I always rip off the tops of the muffins and save it for last. Eating the boring bottom part first so I can get it out of the way. Well, these cookies are like eating all the good stuff of a muffin. And it was created this way totally by accident.

I was assigned Corina's blog Searching for Spice for the October reveal day in a little thing I am a part of called Secret Recipe Club: a fun little club that tries out recipes from other blogs and shares it.

Now normally I would be trying to convince you to join this club, but it is ending next month so this will be my second last assignment. And it is one of the better ones.

While browsing Corina's blog, I found so so SO many recipes I wanted to try. But since the recipes were supposed to be Fall themed, I was restricted in my choices of what I could pick. I knew I wanted to make something with pumpkin, so when I saw a recipe for pumpkin cookies on her blog, I instantly bookmarked it.

Now I'm not sure what happened with my cookies when I converted her recipe from grams to cups, but I am loving the result! Where her cookies were nice and flat, mine are round and soft and taste exactly like a pumpkin muffin top.

Something which I have been trying to figure out how to do since the first time I had a muffin. So a very, very happy accident.

These cookies are great for breakfast because they aren't too sweet, they pair perfectly with coffee (tested and true), and, they are perfect to grab and go out the door if you find that you are running late for work.

...not that I have experienced that at all. No way, not me.

  15. I'm so pleased you enjoyed this recipe and that they turned out ok even after converting to cups! I make so many recipes where I convert in the opposite direction so I know exactly how you must have felt! I was planning to remake these this year but haven't had chance yet. Hopefully I will still find the time.

  18. Pumpkins muffins are awesome and so healthy too and to think this was discovered accidentally. I also wanted to share a new Recipe format for printable recipes for people using Blogger. The Recipes Generator You can try it out for free on the blogspot site, but you will not get the html code, unless you buy it. It is only $20.00. My friend designed it when I told him there wasn't anything like WP recipe plugins for Blogger. Try it here: Recipes Generator I also wrote a tutorial on my blog.
