    Battle in Seattle's Note:

    Everyone around here raves at the muffins you can get at Starbucks, but if they knew how good they could really be--they'd never buy another one again, guaranteed! The size can be pretty versatile--you can make them from mini-size to jumbo; this recipe makes 36 regular sized muffins. (They freeze well, too.)

Use finger to seal top layer of batter around cream cheese, if need be.

Let cool completely before serving--best slightly chilled.

      I get rave reviews every time I make these and people are always requesting the recipe!
      I'm not typically a fan of pumpkin, but I initially made these for my husband, who loves pumpkin. He thought they were fantastic and thought I might like them too, as the pumpkin taste isn't too overwhelming. He was right - even I thought they were pretty good! They are very moist, and the cream cheese surprise in the middle is awesome. Thanks for posting this!
