You know what else kicks butt about fall? Carbs. Nobody really wants to eat carby stuff in the summer-- it's too hot and heavy, and besides peach pie, there is nothing worth standing in a kitchen with the stove on in August.
Best baked goods this week? Truffle Muffins, adapted from Trader Joe's Truffle Brownie baking mix. By baking the mix in a muffin tin, the chocolate chips are distributed in proportions to the caky-ness just right for one muffin, modified with a little cinnamon. Heck yes.
