Pumpkin Creme Muffins


My friend and co-worker Glenda, shared this recipe with me recently and it has become a favorite of the masses! I whipped up a batch of the DELICIOUSLY moist muffins that are a cross between pumpkin bread and pumpkin cheesecake -- very moist and perfectly sweet.

You gotta try them-- I get rave reviews everytime I make them.



So, here's what you need:



BATTER:
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
1 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 oil
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

FILLING:
1 (8 oz.) pkg. creme cheese
1 egg
1/3 sugar

STREUSEL TOPPING:
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
3 T/ flour
2 T. butter

Mix together batter ingredients; set aside.


Blend filling ingredients till smooth;set aside.
Combine streusel ingredients; set aside.

Pour pumpkin batter into greased or lined muffin tins. Fill 2/3 full. Spoon heaping tsp. cream mixture in center. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. streusel topping.



Bake at 350 degrees for about 18 min. Makes 18 muffins.

  7. Gorgeous. Glad to see you're back again. I miss your posts. It didn't realize you had a son in the military. Do you ever participate in operation baking gals? I'm a part of it and we bake care packages and send them over to soldiers. Sometimes I host a team and am always looking for soldiers to bake for. If you think your son and his buddies might appreciate a package stop by my blog and let me know. I'd be happy to have my team bake for them in the next round.
