Country Pumpkin Muffins

You can never have too much pumpkin.  Can you?  Here is another muffin recipe I found on All Recipes.  I had been dying to use my new jumbo muffin pan, plus I had been wanting to try something pumpkin with some butterscotch chips, because I had read on a few different websites that the two go really well together. So, I thought this would be the perfect chance to try both.  

I made the batter for the muffins and added milk chocolate chips to half and butterscotch chips to the other half.  These muffins turned out really good.  The butterscotch ones had a unique flavor that complimented the pumpkin, however, I think I prefer the more traditional ones with the milk chocolate chips.  

So, how did they compare to these pumpkin muffins?  They almost tasted the same, but if I had to choose one, I would choose the first ones, only because these new ones turned a little sticky the next day. Overall, they were really good.  I'm not sure how many it made, because I made jumbo, regular and mini muffins and I didn't count them when I was done.  Also, the recipe's directions said to bake at 400 degrees, which I tried for the first two pans, but the outside was getting done before the inside was done(jumbo muffin on the left), so I turned the oven down for that last few pans and they baked a lot more even(regular muffin in the middle).  I am really sorry, but I forgot to write down how long I baked the large and mini muffins for.  So, just take the time for the regular muffins and do less for the mini and more for the jumbo.
