“Pumpkin, spices and a wonderful streusel topping make these Texas-size muffins extra special. If you don't have the jumbo size muffin cups, use the standard size muffins tins. Line 12 muffin cups with paper baking cups, bake at 400 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes. This will make 12 standard muffins or 6 jumbo muffins.”
