Spiced Pumpkin Muffins

Streusel Topping

  1. In a small bowl, add the flour, sugars, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Whisk to combine.

  2. Add the cut-up butter. Use a pastry cutter or a fork to break up the cubes of butter and disperse within the sugar mixture.

  3. When it resembles wet sand with small clumps it's ready.

    Butter pieces dispersed through the mixture. Should resemble wet sand.
