Annual Baking day 4 Generations!

Yesterday was a great day of baking. Great Grandma Helen, Nana, Me and Carleigh made all sorts of sweets: Snickerdoodles, sugar cookies, peanut butter with Hershey kisses, funfetti, oatmeal craisin, ornament shaped rice krispie treats, stained glass windows, snowballs and new this year we added mini red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frostung and pumpkin butterscotch mini muffins! Carleigh had a ton of fun decorating all of the sugar cookies and by the end of the day everyone was exhausted.

The pumpkin butterscotch muffins were by far my favorite and will be included every year. I have written the recipe below for anyone interested.


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 (6 ounce) package butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease mini-muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. Sift together the flour, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk together the eggs, butter, and pumpkin in a separate bowl. Mix the flour mixture with the egg mixture. Stir in the butterscotch chips; pour into each cup of the muffin pan to about 3/4 full.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 10 to 12 minutes.
