For me one of the best things about this time of year is baking all of the delicious fall desserts. Southern California may not have the crisp, cool October days or beautiful changing leaves, but baking with pumpkin or apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger still fills the house with that cozy autumn feeling.

* I added a dollop of cream cheese to each muffin before putting them in the oven and topped with a basic streusel recipe. (similar here)
