As the country celebrates the promise of Fall, here in SE Texas we are recovering from Hurricane Harvey Thankfully my family is safe and dry but so many others around us are not. If you want to help support to disaster relief you can donate here or to the American Red Cross. Anything you can give will be used to help bless a family.
Today is one of my most favorite days of the year.
PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE is back at Starbucks.
Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice
Anything and everything pumpkin is all I can think about when September comes along. I love to decorate with pumpkins and I love to eat pumpkins. I love the color of pumpkins and I love to drink pumpkin flavored drinks. Not just coffee people, adult drinks as well.
There may have been multiple pumpkin spice coffee creamers purchased in the past just so they don’t sell out and I can’t get more (they last forever).
In celebration of these adorable short, round gords (& the official come back of the PSL) I give you the Pumpkin Spice Latte Muffin. It is loaded with tons of pumpkin, spice, cream cheese (just for fun) and a hint if espresso for that perfect little pick me up.
An extra special swirl
My favorite pumpkin muffins usually include cream cheese in one way or another so when I set out to create this latte muffin I knew I wanted a cream cheese swirl. Let me tell you though this is not your normal cream cheese swirl…there is espresso hidden in the swirl just as in the muffin.
Don’t worry though, it is not overwhelming. It is just a hint making these muffins a little extra special.
And they are pretty
Not only are they delicious but they are also pretty. They look like fall. Each muffin is the perfect shade of orange and a bit of cream cheese swirled through the top making them as pretty as they are yummy.
Now if you are not a cream cheese swirl fan, thats ok…I will still be your friend. They will still be a perfect muffin and almost just as pretty…I promise.
Bring on the muffin (& latte)
I am so, so excited that Fall is coming and these muffins are a perfect way to celebrate all that it promises.
