Hello October! Yesterday we got our first bit of snow here in Fairbanks. Mind you it was only a sprinkling, but I could hardly believe it. If this is fall, what does winter have in store for me? This year is flying by, I can’t believe it’s October. October means pumpkin to me. Pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin oatmeal, and now these Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Muffins.

These are deadly. They are light, fluffy muffins filled with cream cheese and topped with a sugar/cinnamon topping. They are a little time intensive (remember to read through the directions fully before starting), but are totally worth the effort. Some hints while making these: make sure the muffins are filled to the brim (they don’t grow too high while baking), add plenty of topping to each muffin (there is enough to cover each muffin completely) and make sure your cream cheese log is completely frozen before starting (or else you will get air in the muffins).

Happy Baking!
