Easier than Pumpkin Pie...

So, with Thanksgiving just around the corner, my oldest son has suddenly taken to the flavor of pumpkin.  We were blessed with a pumpkin pie from our neighbor last week, and there is where it began.  I have also been on the hunt for a relatively simple recipe for pumpkin muffins and I found it!  Thanks to!  How much easier could it get than just two ingredients!?  They are soooo yummy and moist!  They don't have the regular texture that cupcakes or muffins have, they are moist and, for lack of a better word, smooth.

Pumpkin Muffins
1 box Spice Cake Mix
1 15 oz. canned pumpkin

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Do NOT follow directions on cake box.  Mix ONLY the dry cake mix and the canned pumpkin on medium until well blended.  Mix will be thick.  After mixing you can add any additional 'mix-ins' such as raisins, chocolate chips, cranberries, etc. by gently folding them into the mix.
Spray or line muffin cups.  Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-24 minutes.   If using mini muffins bake for about 15 minutes.  They will be very soft and squishy to the touch.  Top with cream cheese frosting!
