Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins


Welcome fall with its blanket of beautiful colors, crisp mornings and pumpkin muffins 🙂 Just the smell of these filling the house as they bake puts me in a  more relaxed mood.  So slow down, grab a cup of tea and enjoy one of these delicious muffins.

Preheat oven to 325F. Line or grease two (12 muffin) pans.

Muffin Batter

Sift above ingredients into a large bowl

  • 2 cups pumpkin puree ( canned or fresh)
  • 4 eggs

    I made a muffin similar to yours from King Arthur Flour. This is a great combination and looks like I will have to try your version. I am ready for Fall recipes 🙂
