Vintage recipe: Spice muffins smell, taste as good as autumn

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers or postcards. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Household Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?

Add your link below if you want to join in on the vintage fun with a recipe of your own.

Scrumptious smells can instantly take us to wonderful times past or make us feel warm and cozy.  These spice muffins will bring autumn to our kitchens, and everyone big and small will want to gobble them up.  Have fun making them, especially if your have children in your kitchen.

Take note of the photograph below with toasted pumpkin seeds beautifully presented in a glass cup inside a small pumpkin.   It's clever and pretty, but so easy to add that special touch for your family and guests.
