Ingredients : 
- Nonstick cooking spray for baking
- ¼ cup butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons light stick butter (not margarine), softened
- ¼ cup sugar*
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 2 eggs

1) Preheat oven to 350°F. Line fifteen 2½-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups. Spray paper bake cups with cooking spray; set aside.
