Salted Caramel Pumpkin Muffins

I made these for our FPU class on Sunday.  I made them into mini muffins.  They were moist and yummy!
Salted Caramel Pumpkin Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup raw sugar
2 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup dried cranberries
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 cup pumpkin puree

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine all dry ingredients including nuts and cranberries. Add eggs, milk, vanilla, butter and pumpkin. Stir just until moistened. Fill greased muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake for 15-20 minutes until browned and center springs back when touched. Makes 18-20 muffins.

Salted Caramel Glaze:

4 Tablespoons butter
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
3 Tablespoons white or raw sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons milk
1-2 Tablespoons confectioner’s sugar, sifted

Heat butter, sugars, salt, vanilla and milk over medium heat, stirring constantly. When mixture reaches a boil, boil for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and continue stirring. Add one tablespoon confectioner’s sugar to thicken. Use more if it needs to thicken up a bit. Spoon the glaze over semi-cooled muffins
