DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F Place paper baking cups into muffin pan. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, pumpkin spice, baking soda and salt until well combined. Set aside.
  • In large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, sugar and brown sugar.
  • Beat in eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Slowly whisk in the flour mixture, until there are no lumps. Fill muffin tins 3/4 full.
  • In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add in sugar, egg yolk and vanilla extract and beat until well combined.
  • Fill prepared muffin cups.
  • Top each muffin with about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture and use a toothpick to swirl it into the batter. This will not look smooth, but it will bake up much prettier. (You can see exactly how I did this in the video at the top of the page.).
  • Bake muffins for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • I liked these best at room temperature or even slightly chilled.
