pumpkin muffins

These Pumpkin Muffins bake up super moist and tall, covered with an easy buttery crumb topping and drizzled with a quick four-ingredient cinnamon maple glaze. They are the perfect fall treat and they freeze beautifully! I love to serve them up with a fresh pot of coffee. These big beautiful Pumpkin Muffins make for a marvelous breakfast with a big cup of coffee or an after-dinner sweet treat with a glass of milk. Store the muffins on the counter at room temperature for up to 3 days then store them in the fridge or freeze them for long term storage.
