    Well fancy that! I have a little leftover pumpkin puree in my fridge right now and what a perfect day to whip up this recipe!

    Did you hand mix the dry ingredients so as to not overmix?

    I tried real instead of canned pumpkin last night and it turned out wonderful! Thanks so much for such a great fall recipe! Oh, Nicole – I did hand stir and it worked great. 🙂
