Tea on Tuesday: Quick & Easy Frosted Pumpkin Muffins

I love autumn & I love pumpkins! This is a great quick muffin recipe when you don't have the time to really "cook". :)


* 1 package (16 ounces) pound cake mix
* 1 cup canned pumpkin
* 2 eggs
* 1/3 cup water
* 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 can (16 ounces) cream cheese frosting
* 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, optional

* In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pumpkin, eggs, water, pumpkin pie spice and baking soda; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
* Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
* Frost muffins. Sprinkle with pecans if desired. Store in the refrigerator.

Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
