Baking Fall Things

 Happy Friday!
I have pinned so many fall recipes that there is absolutely now way I'll ever get around to making them (this year). However, This one was up near the top of the list and I just happened to have a can of pumpkin and some apples sitting around. I copied the recipe straight from here so click on the link to see the original. She includes a cream cheese middle which I left out for various reasons. She gives a lot of suggested options. I'm so happy with the way they turned out. Very moist, not too pumpkiny and not too sweet. Just Right!
