I’ve been wanting to make pumpkin muffins for a month now. My fall cooking plans start early since I can’t seem to wait that long to enjoy them. However, my plans have so far been dashed.

I can’t get away from pumpkin. Especially during the fall months, but I don’t mind because it always rocks my world. I like to start and finish my day with a good dose of the stuff. These muffins are the perfect way to accomplish one half of that task. They’re a more travel-friendly version of the wonderful pumpkin bread, but just as delicious.

I first had a real kolache a couple years ago in West, Texas at the famous “Czech Stop.” It’s a gas station/bakery that serves an array of kolaches (both fruit and sausage) as well as other stuff, but it’s the kolaches that keep the people coming in at all hours of the night, which make it necessary for it to be open 24/7. But, it was the cream cheese kolaches that became my favorite.
As I was finding recipes for my next cookbook, I wondered if pumpkin kolaches would be good, and invariably the answer is “of course!” However, I could never find a recipe for them, so I came up with my own.

I’m a little proud of this recipe, not to toot my own horn, but I’m really glad it came out wonderfully cause it’s the perfect combination. A little back story. I had come across a recipe for Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake in the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook and it sounded good, but I’m not a huge fan of maple syrup (which played a large role in the flavor), so I decided if I was going to make it without the syrup it would need a little something extra. After thinking about the recipe and its ingredients some more I realized one thing. It didn’t include any cinnamon. In all of the wonderful pumpkin recipes I’ve ever had, cinnamon seems to play an integral part in providing that flavor. Cinnamon and pumpkin were born to be together. So, I concluded maybe what it needed was some lovely cinnamon mousse on top. And the result is something wonderfully delicious. With the pumpkin cheesecake and light cinnamon mousse, there is a taste similar to that of a thanksgiving pie, only creamier.

Just so you know, my picture is still available on wallblank.com for the next couple days, so check it out while you can!

There was a time when stores only carried pumpkin in a can during the holiday time because of its connotation as a holiday treat. But a few years ago they began carrying it on a year-round basis, which cause all kinds of joy inside of me. So, today I’m presenting one of my favorite recipes. It comes from the Bisquick family. I like pies alright, but I’ve never really been a fan of the crust. It just always seems to dry the rest of it out, so I usually just eat the filling and give the crust to someone else. This recipe, however combines one of my favorite things and takes away an unnecessary evil. A crustless pumpkin pie. Or Impossible, as the recipe calls it.
