What Does Fall Taste Like?… Muffins!

What do you think Fall tastes like?

Many proclaim the glories of an infamous caffeinated drink distributor’s seasonal latte. It has become such a seasonal obsession that painfully infatuated masses dive into a pit of despair when the flavored syrups are not officially released in stores yet.

In recent years, the PSL craze has grown to unreasonable proportions, involving sausage, butter, and dog treats.

Yes, that’s right… Dog treats. (63 more “pumpkin spiced” items can be found here.)

Brilliant Colors and Flavors of the Season

A couple of years ago, I tasted a cookie that inspired me to combine some of my favorite flavors of the season into one delicious treat. Thus, my “Tastes Like Fall” muffins were born.

Just like the leaves outside that turn into fiery colors, this muffin springs bright with oranges, greens, and reds. The earthy warmth of nutmeg and cinnamon contrast well with the tart cranberries. To welcome in the crispy chill of the morning, make some of these and pair with your favorite coffee. I’ve heard the Maple Pecan latte is nice.
