Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin Recipe
Pumpkin + Cream Cheese = Yum. I love just about anything made with this combo! I was looking for a recipe to make for some breakfasts this week and pumpkin muffins sounded so good. But then I thought I needed to make them even better by adding a little cream cheese! (Because what isn’t?) This yummy little recipe is what I came up with.
Random side note… one of my childhood cats’ name was Pumpkin. She was such a good little kitty except for the fact that she used to go get snakes and mice and bring them up on the front porch for my mom and me to see…..alive.
