Shaker Pumpkin Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

The Shakers were a hard-working simple group of people who were notorious for their "Hands to work Hearts to God" school of thought. Their recipes were like themselves - easy, simple, and plain. Their recipes were easy and all their dishes were produced from the products of their farm and were always fresh or preserved naturally. These pumpkin muffins are easy and deeelish.

These are exactly like the pumpkin muffins served at Pleasant Hill, KY, in Shaker Village. My family loves them!
