Mini Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

I'm still loving all of the pumpkin recipes, that I've been seeing on the web. I made these Mini Pumpkin Streusel muffins along with the Candy Bar Blondies,  to take to the nursing home staff  , where my Dad lived for six years, last week. These moist little treats are full of pumpkin flavor, spices, and topped with a crunchy streusel topping, so good. They were a definite hit with the staff.

These muffins come together quickly, and taste great warm from the oven.  I made sour milk, because I didn't have buttermilk.  Next time I will try making the muffins with Greek yogurt. These muffins freeze well, too.  You can make a batch now, and freeze for later, when you have  holiday company.  This recipe is for 12 regular muffins, but I made 24 mini muffins, baking for just about 13 min, in a mini muffin pan. whichever size you make, you won't be disappointed.
