Cooking with Mommy - Pumpkin Cream Cheese muffins

Decided to try out a new recipe today. Thought it'd be fun to let Hannah get her first taste at helping mommy in the kitchen. She did great and was all smiles!

We made Pumpkin Cream Cheese muffins. Very mild in both pumpkin and cream cheese flavor. Nothing really screams out at you on these, and they are quite good. I think I prefered them cool, with a little schmear of butter on them after they've been cut in half. But that's just me. The house smelled divine.

Of course to help in the kitchen, one must wear an apron. Hannah borrowed one of Brooke's.

It's been awhile since I've let Brooke help me in the kitchen. Guess next time i'm working on something that's not for a customer, I'll let her help! Hopefully I won't have girls fighting over who gets to help!

Standing on her chair, apron on, dumping in the ingredients.

Stirring the dry ingredients with a spoon.

Using the mixer! She thought that was pretty neat!

She also helped put the liners in the muffin tins, and sprinkle the streusel topping on top. But my camera died before that happened.

The outcome: yummy looking muffins.

The verdict from the two year old - Nummy! She wolfed one down and wanted another.

Have a great weekend! Enjoy this GORGEOUS weather!

Yum! Those sound delish! Oh, and that second profile picture of Hannah looks so much like Brooke! I had to look again to make sure you hadn't snuck a picture of Brooke in there!
