  1. Loved these muffins! Great recipe. I decided to do 1/2 butterscotch and 1/2 white chocolate chips. Topped with a sprinkle of walnut pieces & cinnamon sugar. Delicious 🙂

  2. These are now my favorite pumpkin muffin – they baked up perfect, moist and delicious ! The combination of pumpkin and butterscotch wins out over chocolate chip this fall ! Thanks for a great recipe.
