  • Sift together the flour, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk together the eggs, butter, and pumpkin in a separate bowl. Mix the flour mixture with the egg mixture. Stir in the butterscotch chips; pour into each cup of the muffin pan to about 3/4 full.

  • Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 10 to 12 minutes.

Like others, I wasn't too sure about the butterscotch and pumpkin combo. I made half with, and half without the chips - by FAR the muffins with the butterscotch chips were the hit! The butterscotch flavor pairs perfectly with the spices and makes for a totally fantastic taste experience...you'll definitely want to give this recipe a try! Read More

I made no changes to this recipe. These came out great! I've got a Girls Night Out tonight so I made these today for tomorrow's breakfast. (Never know how hungover you'll be the next day.) Simple enough to throw together. I did have full-sized and the other half mini-sized, for the kids. These are very good and great for rainy Sunday mornings. I bought a large can of pumpkin, which I only needed a third of. I froze the rest in one-cup servings, so I can just thaw out the pumpkin and make these again. For those of you who worry about the chips sinking to the bottom and burning, toss them in a bit of the dry ingredients, then fold into the muffin batter. No sinking here! Read More

Great combination of flavor! One note after making two very different batches: packing down the brown sugar results in shorter, more dense muffins, while not packing it down (less brown sugar) gives fluffier, cake-like muffins. Great recipe as is. Read More

MMMM, Mommy, you have to make these again! That's the quote I got from my 7 year old. I altered the recipe to make it a little more healthy - white whole wheat flour, 3/4 cups brown sugar - no white sugar, 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup applesauce - even so, the muffins were wonderful and the butterscotch was a nice companion to the pumpkin.

These came out wonderfully and were gone in no time. A new record. I didn't have butterscoth chips so I subsituted them with 6oz of caramel topping and added an extra 1/4 cup of flour. I also used pumpkin puree instead of canned. This is a great recipe. Read More

OH MY GAWD..these are great!! We're not big butterscotch fans but when they're combined with the right flavors as they are here... you've got yourself a winner. Plus they look so cute that it's a classy take-to for get-togethers. My recommendation is to fill them right about to the top so you have a nice muffin top instead of a flat muffin.:) Read More

These are SOOO good! I made the recipe exactly as written. My husband isn't usually a fan of baked goods and even he is addicted. They disappeared immediately. AWESOME recipe!!! Read More

These were really great! Everybody in the office loved them. I added some cloves and allspice to the recipe and increased the ginger and cinnamon for personal taste as I like things spicy! Thanks for the great recipe. Read More
