Delicious! I didn't have powdered sugar so subbed baker's sugar and they still came out great! I made a double batch so that I could have plenty of muffins for those of my kids who don't want cream cheese ANYTHING, and both versions are yummy.

This is the 2nd of 2 muffin recipes I made today for the Camera-less Chef game. The texture was a bit more doughy than I expected & the muffin dough seemed heavy on baking powder & short on sweetness to me, but the filling made up for that to a lrg extent. I used my homemade rhubarb jam instead of strawberry. Altho rhubarb is tart by nature, my jam was sweet & worked well w/the cream cheese mixture. Some of the cream cheese & jam mixture escaped during baking & caused a few of the muffins to crack, but maybe that is to be expected. I really wish 3.5 stars were available. We liked them & I will make them again after the holidays, increase the sugar & comment on the outcome. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. Edited to Add a Star: DH said he really likes these a lot!
