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.
