Pumpkin spice muffins storage

What’s the best way to store these pumpkin and spice muffins? The sugar adds a little crunch to the topping, so here’s the best way to keep it:

  • Up to 4 days: Place a paper towel on the bottom of a sealed container, place the muffins inside, and place a paper towel on top. The paper towels absorb the moisture that rises on the top of the muffins.
  • 1 week or longer: These muffins can also be kept well in the refrigerator! Let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes before eating.
  • 3 months: Freeze in a sealable container and store for up to 3 months.
