Pumpkin Muffins with Praline Cream Cheese

I love most everything about fall...the food, the clothes, the smells, the excitement in the air as football is in full swing!  

I saw these perfect-for-fall Pumpkin Muffins at Flair For Home, and I knew the ingredients would be on my next grocery list!  They are super easy and quick to prepare.

 These muffins are the perfect treat for neighbors, teachers, or as a gift to a new mom!
The base for these muffins is a boxed pumpkin muffin mix.  Pillsbury or Kroger brand available.

Pumpkin Muffins with Praline Cream Cheese 

To prepare muffins:

1 box pumpkin bread mix
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup milk
2 eggs
*1/2 can pumpkin (regular sized can)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  

Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with Pam.  In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients, except pumpkin, with spatula.  Fold in pumpkin last.  Fill muffin cups with batter.  

Bake for 18-20 minutes.  

*Save other half can of pumpkin for another batch later in the week!

To prepare praline cream cheese spread:

1- 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar

Using mixer, combine cream cheese and brown sugar until smooth.  Remove from oven and serve warm with praline cream cheese.  

Send half a recipe to a neighbor, friend, or teacher!

I'm so glad I found this recipe and your white bean chicken chili recipe - sounds like Sunday dinner to me! Thanks!

I have that mix in my pantry! At first, I thought you had injected the filling INTO the muffins...which may be a possibility to try. Either way, they look delicious!

Thanks for sharing how to make praline cream cheese. Yum!
