One thing I really enjoy doing but never seem to have enough time to do is, baking, I use to do it all the time on Thursday's because it's "Grey's" night and my sisters and friend come over to pig out and watch T.V.
This past Thursday I thought I would put aside the chores for awhile and bake. Last year for Thanksgiving I made a pumpkin cream cheese pie and I also wanted to make pumpkin muffins with a cream cheese filling but, I never got around to it (I can't get enough of anything with a cheese filling...Yum!). So this year I decided to give the muffins a try, and they were delicious!
Here is the recipe I followed ( I altered it a little for myself), I found it through Pinterest, but the original recipe is from Gourmade At Home.
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, being careful not to over mix.
Fill muffin cups 1/2 of the way full with batter mixture. Place a dollop of the cream cheese mixture in the center of each muffin then fill the rest with batter so it is about 3/4 full.
Sprinkle some crushed pecans on top, or other desired toppings.
Bake 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. Let the muffins cool for 10 minutes.
Britt also made some cute autumn cupcake toppers, but couldn't resist putting them on these muffins... You can download them for free over on her blog.
Enjoy your delicious autumn treat!
