Cream Cheese Pumpkin Muffins
If you like pumpkin treats, you’ve gotta make these muffins, you’re gonna love them!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp. ground cloves
- 1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups pumpkin puree
- 1¼ cups vegetable oil
- 8 oz. cream cheese softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350 and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
- Prepare the filling by combining the cream cheese and powdered sugar in a medium bowl and mixing well until blended and smooth.Transfer filling to a piping bag fitted with a piping tip. (just a regular round piping tip will do fine)
- Prepare the muffin batter. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pumpkin pie spice, salt and baking soda; whisk to blend. In the bowl of an electric mixer combine the eggs, sugar, pumpkin puree and oil. Mix on medium-low speed until blended. With the mixer on low speed, add in the dry ingredients, mixing just until incorporated.
- Fill muffin tins 2/3 full with muffin batter. Next add the filling. Poke the piping tip into the middle of each muffin batter-filled tin. Squeeze out about 1-2 tablespoons of filling into the batter. (Just guess, it doesn't need to be exactly 2 tablespoons, just enough to fill the center of the muffin)
- Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out mostly clean. Allow to cool on a wire rack. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
