Autumn Muffins

In honor of autumn, pumpkin, spices and butter!  Mmmmm, I can smell these already!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix together dry ingredients:
1 cup flour
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon salt

Melt 4 tablespoons of butter, then mix into
½ cup milk
1 beaten egg
1 ½ teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pumpkin puree

Quickly stir together wet and dry ingredients, pour into buttered muffin tin, bake for 25 minutes.

If you like a little streusel topping, mix ¼ cup brown sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 2 tablespoons flour and 2 tablespoons melted butter, spoon on top of batter in tins before baking.
