"My family liked these at the Thanksgiving dinner party, of course they mostly preferred the pumpkin"

"I made these following the recipe exactly and they were wonderful! Very moist and a nice blend of pumpkin and apple. I agree with the other comments as far as the streusel topping though, it pretty much melted on top of the muffin. Next time I will add more flour and use less butter."

"These muffins are amazing! I used tart, Granny Smith apples for a more distinctive taste. They're the best straight out of the oven! A lot of oil, though. I'm going to try my next batch with the applesauce substitution."
