My mother-in-law came up with these tender treats by combining a few of her favorite muffin recipes. Chock-full of pumpkin, they feature both a sweet cream cheese filling and crunchy praline topping. —Lisa Powelson, Scott City, Kansas

"Sorry. This was the worst pumpkin recipe I have ever made. The baking soda amount was over the top and the pumpkin muffin tasted like baking soda. It was awful. This recipe needs to be deleted. O stars. Just awful. Do not make."

"Absolutely terrific recipe. I made these for the crew I work with and the men came back asking for the recipe. Nice texture, the cream cheese filling stays soft even the muffins are cool, and the praline topping is terrific. I doubled it the second time I made the recipe for even more crunch and flavor."

"These were very tasty and moist! I used almost all applesauce instead of oil, and I added some allspice, cloves and vanilla. Thank you for sharing!"

"Great recipe! These are perfect to serve to company or give as gifts, but I would easily be able to eat them all by myself! I also doubled the topping & added a splash of vanilla extract to the batter & filling. No need to buy expensive scented candles or potpourri... just bake up a batch of these muffins!"
