Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

I saw a friends FB update last week that said “the sweet smell of pumpkin & butterscotch” was coming from her kitchen! I had to know what it was so I hit Google and searched the 2 key words; and I found a ton of stuff. I found this recipe over and over so I guess I can’t really give any one person credit. I just can’t take the credit because I unfortunately did not think this one up! I made them in 2 pans 1 mini 1 reg. I sent the mini pan to pre-school with j and I personally think the minis were better. Not sure why maybe just because I love that little bite you get from a mini!
