The Pumpkin Spice Muffin Top Making Kelley

Ready to hear something really weird?  I don’t really like cookies. I mean don’t get me wrong, I will eat through a sleeve of Oreos now and then, but for the most part, I pass on most things cookie. So, when I first made this recipe, I wasn’t expecting to like it, but my husband loves cookies, so I decided to make these pumpkin cookies for him.

Then, something strange happened.  I LOVED this new delicious dessert.  We made it about 3 times in one month (We don’t usually make desserts, so that’s saying a lot!)!  Then, after much thought, I realized why I loved them.  They’re not like cookies at all, they’re like one of my favorite things ever:  Muffin tops!  I have to be honest, when I eat a muffin, all I really want is the top part, and that is exactly what these are!

I found this recipe at the wonderful Tracey’s Culinary Adventures, but I changed it up just a smidgen and I decided to rename them according to what we now call them in our home.
