Many years ago for Christmas, my older sister printed off some family recipes and put them in a binder for us to start a family cookbook. This weekend I found this recipe for my late grandmother’s apple pumpkin streusel muffins. I ran out of streusel topping and was too lazy to make more (even though it’s really easy). So some of the muffins in the picture are with and some without the streusel. It was a good experiment though because I can say first hand that the muffins taste great either way.
This was the perfect recipe to find right as the Ready for Fall Meet and Greet was wrapping up. Thank so much for everyone who participated. We shared our favorite fall recipes and what we are looking forward to most about the upcoming season. I thought it was a lot of fun and have some new recipes to try out. Everyone else should pop over and scroll through the comments for some great new recipe ideas and blogs to read.
Have a great rest of the week!
Grandma Ada’s Apple Pumpkin Streusel
