A drizzle of bourbon in the batter makes these pumpkin muffins extra rich, while a sweet and crunchy cinnamon-sugar and pecan topping makes these muffins sugary enough for dessert.

So moist and tender! Don't get a lot of bourbon flavor in the muffin, but it comes through perfectly in the glaze!

The amount of sugar listed in the recipe is wrong. I used a full cup less in the batter and the muffins turned out what you would expect for a sweet muffin. But even with that adjustment, they aren't great. The bourbon isn't noticable in the muffins and they taste like normal pumpkin muffins you might impulse buy in a grocery store bakery and then not buy again.

I would love to try these but wonder that 3 1/3 cups of sugar must be an error?
