Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins Recipe @pinch

Moist and delicious, these pumpkin cream cheese muffins have just the right amount of pumpkin spice. The muffin and streusel topping are perfectly sweet and have a nice flavor contrast to the slightly savory cream cheese filling. The pumpkin muffin recipe makes 3 dozen cupcakes, so It is a good recipe if you need to serve a crowd. I can't really take credit for this because the base recipe comes from the Libby pumpkin people. I just added the cream cheese filling and the streusel topping. These muffins turned out really great!

  • 2 teaspoon(s) pumpkin pie spices
  • 2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 cup(s) add in (cranberries, dates, currents, raisins, etc)
  • 1 can(s) Libby's easy pumpkin pie mix (32 oz)
  • 1/2 cup(s) vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup(s) orange juice, apple juice, or water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 package(s) cream cheese (8 oz)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon(s) brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon(s) butter, cold
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon(s) chopped nuts (if you like, I use pecans)
Intructions :
  • Preheat oven to 400. Combine flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl
  • Combine pumpkin pie mix, oil, orange/apple juice or water, and eggs in another large bowl
  • Pour pumpkin mixture into flour mixture
  • Stir just until moistened
  • Fold in stir-ins (if desired)
  • Spoon batter into muffin papers, filling about halfway
  • In another bowl, combine cream cheese, egg, and vanilla for filling. Beat with a mixer until smooth
  • Put into a Ziploc bag and cut one corner to create a piping bag. Insert the open corner of the bag about 1/4 inch into each muffin and squeeze gently. Each one should get about a teaspoon (more/less if you'd like). Move along until each is filled
  • Combine streusel ingredients together in a bowl and cut with two knives, a pastry mixer, or (my favorite) your hands until combined
  • Sprinkle topping over muffins. Bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
