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.

Enjoy!

*****

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.
