{twd} allspice crumb muffins

I've been having some trouble with this whole fall thing, and apparently I'm not alone. Just this morning, I saw two girls in miniskirts and sandals shivering in the crisp October weather. Normally I love all things pumpkin and corduroy and autumnal, but this year I just haven't been feeling it. In my defense, I do have an excuse. You see when I left for Southeast Asia, there were still several weeks of summer left in New York, and it just seems wrong to have returned to an entirely different season. Don't get me wrong--I don't have anything against apples and ankle boots, I had just hoped for a little more time with my stone fruits and flip flops. But these Allspice Crumb Muffins, this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, are making the changing of the seasons a little easier to swallow. They're not my favorite muffins ever, but their sweet spicy scent is definitely getting me in the mood for fall. And the streusel on top of them? Well I could eat that all day. Thanks to Kayte of Grandma's Kitchen Table for this week's selection.

Your muffins look fabulous! I know what you mean about the "Fall" thing. It's really hard to get into it down here in FL. It was 92 degrees today! But, these muffins made my house smell like Autumn.

Great muffins. Love your photos (on all your posts.) Thanks for stopping by my blog.
I'm not at all liking fall either--oh, maybe that's because I swear it already feels like winter here! (Kansas) Sigh. I'm going to be mad if we don't get some fall back.
