Tasty and Festive

These were made in conjunction with a Pumpkin Harvest of the Month activity. <br/> <br/>All the participants loved them and they really liked the nuts on top. Putting the sugar/cinnamon mixture on top of the muffins made them crunchy and delicious. The muffins were very moist and fluffy. The cooking time was spot on.
