About Maple Cream/Butter
Pumpkin Muffins with Maple Cream Recipe -
When the autumn leaves start to turn and pumpkins seem to be everywhere here in Vermont, we get the urge to bake! One of our favorite fall recipes is delicious pumpkin muffins with maple butter or pure maple cream (made only with maple syrup, no butter mixed in). These muffins make a tasty breakfast during the foliage season, and especially on Thanksgiving morning. It's combining two wonderful flavors, pumpkin and maple! With a hot cup of coffee, these muffins are also a delicious mid-day snack! Give us your feedback.
