Pumpkin Spice Madelines
With acronyms like PSL (pumpkin spice latte) running rampant these fall days, I decided to make a little something to dip into your favorite warm beverage. I love traditional lemon and almond madelines, why not try a fall twist!
I thought I was being so clever until I googled pumpkin madelines and well, many someone's are also very clever. Hopefully this recipe though, is super fast, super basic and only puts you 20 minutes and about $7 away from deliciousness.

If you do use the yellow cake mix, I added about 10 shakes of cloves and about 15 shakes of pumpkin pie spice. This is completely your taste but for me, you can't add enough pumpkin pie spice mix.
Make sure to preheat your oven to 350 and then one small scoop in each madeline shell is all you'll need. Baking time is around 8-10 minutes because these little cuties are so small.
That's it! They're not overly sweet and I think that's what I enjoyed most about them. They were almost like a muffin and muffins are healthy right?
