New Winter Product: Frozen Cheese Pumpkin

Ray has a great new product this winter, frozen cheese squash, available in 16 oz packages. Use it for making soup or baking pies, cookies, muffins – any recipe that calls for canned pumpkin will be healthier, tastier and even look better if you use this.

Here’s an easy recipe to try (thanks, Risa):

Whisk together in a separate bowl until combined, then add flour mixture and stir until just combined (don’t overmix).

1/4 – 1/2c golden raisins (chopped if large raisins)

Spoon mixture into muffin tins lined with paper muffin cups.

1 tbsp sugar
