I am so so happy that it is finally pumpkin season! Although summer is my favorite season and I love every second of it, there is just something about the first few weeks of fall. The weather cools down, the leaves start to change, and the fall baking cannot be beat! Give me everything pumpkin and apple. You are going to love these cinnamon sugar pumpkin muffins. They are fluffy, moist, and have the perfect amount of pumpkin and sweetness. They are good as a muffin alone, but the cinnamon sugar topping is what puts them above and beyond! You need to make these this fall.
