Pumpkin Muffins with Pecan Streusel

Pumpkin Muffins Pecan Streusel

Fall is around the corner... though with the temps this week predicted in the low 90's, it might take awhile.  Don't get me wrong, I love summer - I would rather have the heat instead of the cold!  But when it does start cooling off, one of my favorite ingredients is pumpkin.

I 'm getting a head start with these muffins.  I was just craving pumpkin flavor and this just hit the spot.  I kept it pretty easy by using a mix.  (I got this one at Trader Joe's but I've seen others in the market.)  Or maybe you have a favorite pumpkin muffin recipe - use that, but be sure to top with the tasty streusel I came up with.
