I cant really take credit for this, because the base recipe comes from the Libby pumpkin people. I just added the cream cheese filling (optional) and the strussel topping (also optional) and these muffins turned out really great!

How to Make Pumpkin Cream Cheese muffins

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Combine flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl.
  2. Combine pumpkin pie mix, oil, orange/apple juice or water, and eggs in another large bowl.
  3. Pour pumpkin mixture into flour mixture; stir just until moistened. Fold in Stir Ins. Spoon batter into muffin papers, filling about 1/2 way.
  4. In another bowl, combine the cream cheese, egg and vanilla for filling. Beat with a mixer until smooth. Put into a ziplock bag and cut one corner to create a piping bag.
  5. Insert the open corner of the bag about 1/4 inch into the each muffin and squeeze gently. Each one should get about a teaspoon (more/less, if you'd like). Move along until each is filled.
  6. OPTIONAL- Combine strusel ingredients together in a bowl and cut with two knives, a pastry mixer or (my favorite) your hands until combined. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
  7. Bake about 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
