A couple days ago a woke up wanting to bake something... more specifically something with pumpkin. Who says pumpkin flavored treats only belong during brisk Fall months? So out came my apron, bowls and spoons. Glad to have had a chance to try this recipe again. Definitely a favorite.

YUM! I feel like pumpkin should be incorporated in all seasons – it's just too good. Let's tell Starbucks to have the Pumpkin Spice Latte year round too :)

Definitely trying this recipe. Thanks for posting!
