Tip #2: Generously coat your mini muffin pan with a baking release spray. Alternatively, you could buy mini muffin liners. Whatever you decide, you don't want your pumpkin spice mini muffins to stick to the pan!
Tip #6: Let your muffins cool before eating. When baked goods are still warm immediately from the oven, the steam is redistributing inside them. Letting them cool completely keeps that moisture inside, helping to achieve a soft and tender crumb.
