With temperatures hitting a high of 48 today it appears mother nature has finally decided it’s time for fall in our neck of the woods!

Although I do not like the colder temperatures, I do LOVE Fall.

I’ll be honest. When Fall comes knocking on our door, I can’t wait for cozy fires, hot chocolate, and the smell of Fall spices.

If you’ve been following along for a while then you know that I’m a huge collector of cookbooks.  I have boxes and boxes of them that I’ve picked up at rummage sales or thrift stores. I haven’t even come close to going through every one, but I definitely have a few favorites.

I found the recipe for these moist-spicy muffins years ago in an old cookbook I picked up at a rummage sale entitled Treasures of Christmas.  That book truly is a treasure because it is jam-packed with delicious recipes and not just for the holidays!

I hope you enjoy this recipe for Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins!

Enjoy!
