1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp salt

4 T shortening (Earth Balance Spread, butter etc)

1 egg

4 oz evaporated milk

1c pumpkin

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 c raisins

Instructions:

Mix flour and spices. Cut fat into flour until it resembles coarse sand. Mix other ingredients and combine with flour. Use cup liners, silicon pan or cooking spray for muffin tin. Pour mixture into tin. Sprinkle tops with 1T sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg. Bake 20 minutes.
