Pumpkin Muffin Tops

Tried & True Recipes

Pumpkin Muffin Tops filled with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg and topped with a delicious streusel.

Happy November folks! Hope you all had a safe and fun Halloween. The amount of candy consumed this weekend was out of this world. I stopped caring. Its all going in the trash today! Well, most of it – lol! 😉

You want to know what else is out of this world? These Pumpkin Muffin tops. With perfect fall flavors of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and of course pumpkin, this is a MUST HAVE recipe for the holidays. We first tried them at Kneader’s Cafe and realized immediately we needed to try a copycat recipe. These ones tasted just like it, and now we are so excited we can have these at home whenever we want!! They were simple to make,  and if you don’t have a muffin top tin, no worries! Simply lay them on a cookie sheet and voila – Perfect pumpkin muffin tops! It was delicious, but I’m thinking we may need to try adding the chocolate chips next time we make them. I’m a firm believer that chocolate chips make everything better. Will you make yours with or without chips?? Either way is a win!

Happy baking!

You don’t HAVE to have a muffin tops pan to make these. I poured some batter onto parchment paper and this is how they turned out. Still great!!
