The leaves have changed colors and are falling off the trees, there’s a chill in the air, and I’ve begun to accessorize every outfit with a scarf. Yep, it’s fall, all right. And the best part of fall? The produce! Pumpkins, squash, sweet potatoes, and my favorite – apples! These apple muffins are delicious. They are moist, sweet and have the perfect density. I added a streusel topping to the recipe I found and they turned out wonderful!
