A loverly Autumn treat...a scratch and sniff post.

Undressed and ready to eat...
My good friend, Donna, made these for us...a spicy harvesttime treat. and it makes your house smell spectacular!


Ya take one spice cake mix

Then ya take one can of pumpkin (not the pie filling, since the cake mix has all the spices you need).

Then you moosh them all together, stirring the mixture up very well and put them in cupcake tins, preferably with the little muffin papers, so you don't have to scrub your cupcake tins (right, Donna??)....

You could add just about any sweet treat to these goodies but take them out of the oven (after cooking them at 350 degrees for at least 15 minutes, watching them, of course) and put a nice sized dollop of cool whip on top and oooooooo the smells and tastes. My cousin walked into the house while we were baking them and said it smelled like autumn in our house...it is so stinkin' easy too...you will love it because it's not too strong either way in the spice cake or pumpkin department. I don' t usually like pumpkin flavored stuff either. nor does my lovely sister, who gobbled one of these bad boys right up...you go, B. (you are growing up, my dear) :) ;) :P

all right...just wanted to share this with you all! wish you could smell it right now! chow...

I soooo need a recipe for a cookout on Sat night. Guess what this momma is taking! You heard it! Oh yeah! Can't wait to sink my teeth into those bad boys! I might have to make TWO batches so I can eat one batch and share the other. Who am I kidding?!? Who wants to SHARE?!? ha!
