Pumpkin Pecan Muffins

Fall is here and these muffins welcome the season with wonderful pumpkin and pecan flavors!  A simple yet flavorful muffin to satisfy your taste buds.  I mixed the pumpkin flavors from my pumpkin pie scones recipe with the awesome pecan topping from my sweet potato casserole dish.  These are oh so delicious and so satisfying with each bite.
