When you read the ingredient list, these really sound strange, but they are sooo good. the morsels and walnuts baked on top make them especially yummy. I got this recipe off an old can of pumpkin and decided to make them to finally get rid of the pumkin. I've bought a lot more pumpkin since.

These cupcakes are gorgeous. They look like they came from a bakery and they are so moist. My kitchen smells wonderful with the pumpkin, cinnamon & butterscotch aroma. Thanks for posting.
We are trying out pumpkin recipes this Fall. Family gave this recipe two thumbs up, though we like nuts (pecans) in the batter and not on top. Combine chips with a crumb topping and place on top. Yummy!
