Cream Cheese Filled Pumpkin Muffins...YUM.

Melt in your mouth, to die for delicious...

I have found a new love.

Cream cheese frosting meets inside of pumpkin muffin.

All topped with a streusel topping.

Holy yumminess. These things? Are insanely delish. 

And because I heart you all I am sharing that recipe with you today.

I originally got the recipe from Annie's Eats, but made some changes to make them my own little version.



Cream Cheese Filling

8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 c powdered sugar

Combine both. Stick bowl of cream cheese filling in freezer to chill while you do the other portions of the recipe.

Streusel Topping

5 tbsp flour
4tbsp butter, cold, cut into pieces
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c brown sugar

Combine all ingredients in a bowl until crumbly. Place bowl in refrigerator as you make the muffin mixture.

Pumpkin Muffin

Add together the following dry ingredients. 

3 c flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp plus 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

Combine the following (I stirred by hand, but you can use your mixer, too!)

1 can pumpkin puree (not the big can)
4 large eggs
2 c sugar
1 1/4 c oil

Add your flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture. Stir/mix until blended thoroughly.


Preheat oven to 350

Line your muffin pans with 24 wrappers. (Or if you only have one pan use 12 now and 12 later)


Spoon a small spoonful of muffin mixture so it covers the bottom of your liner.

Take your cream cheese mixture out of the freezer.

Spoon a small spoonful of cream cheese yumminess and place on top of the mixture in your liner.

Top the cream cheese with muffin mixture--be sure to cover the cream cheese all of the way.

Sprinkle streusel topping onto muffins. Push streusel down gently.


Cook for 20 minutes at 350.

Remove from oven.

Serve muffins warm--they will seriously melt in your mouth.


And that's it! They really aren't very time consuming. I omitted a few of her steps to save time.

My girls both LOVED them--and I even took some to my neighbors...

Enjoy--and seriously make these. Today.
