Pumpkin Spice Muffins

It is very snowy here today, the perfect day for a big pot of chili and some muffins. And since I love pretty much everything pumpkin I decided to try these. The ingredients certainly don't get much simpler than these, that's for sure... Enjoy!!

1 box of spice cake mix (I prefer Duncan Hines)
15-oz. can pure pumpkin
1/2 c. water

Streusel topping:
1/2 stick butter, room temperature
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1/4 c. flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together cake mix, pumpkin, and water until thoroughly combined.
Spoon batter into a muffin tin that has been either lightly greased or lined with cupcake liners. The muffins don't rise a whole lot so you can fill the muffin cups a little fuller than normal.

Prepare streusel topping by combining flour and brown sugar, then cutting butter in. You can use a fork or pastry blender for this part but I always just use my fingers.

Sprinkle streusel over muffin batter.

Bake for 20-24 minutes.
