Some of you may not have known it, but there has been a canned pumpkin shortage. That is not the "somewhat silly" part of this blog....it is true....Libby's ran out of canned pumpkin months ago and is now finally able to produce some. I found out the hard way.....when I was frantically searching for some in August when I needed to make my oldest son's birthday request....his favorite pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. Thankfully a friend of mine had a small can on her pantry shelf....enough for the birthday boy anyway.
I found these 5 large cans on the grocery shelf on Monday.....I took them all....I know...it was very greedy of me...but hey....when it comes to these muffins...my whole family is greedy!
I never waste my time on regular size muffins.....I always bake up the jumbo size....and my greedy family will still take two at a time!
I quadrupled the batch...because hey...we really needed to celebrate the return of Libby's Pumpkin!!!
I actually don't care for these muffins....wish I did since they are the most frequently requested baked goodie in our home.
