I was desperately craving pumpkin anything anything delicious and mouth watering but…. I was out of sugar and most cookies call for at least 1 1/2 cups sugar :/ bummer. Then I thought I saw on Pinterest that you could mix a can of pumpkin with a spice cake mix. Bingo! Problem solved. FALSE, no spice cake mix here. I did have a yellow box mix so I thought what the heck I’ll improvise. And poof these muffins magically appeared and then disappeared as soon as Mr. Smith came home. Success this time really was in a ‘can’…. of pumpkin that is!
