Made these festive muffins yesterday and they were moist and tender. I added extra seasonings (1/16 tsp of cloves, nutmeg, ginger) and still found them to be a little bland. The cream cheese filling was not memorable and the topping was very scant and sticky - and remained sticky after cooling. Maybe I’m a harsh critic - shared with friends and they enjoyed them!

These muffins were a big hit with my co-workers. They take some time to put together, but worth it in the end. Yum!

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.

I added double strength vanilla to batter and cream cheese filling. Delicious.

fantastic. I would also double the praline topping next time and add pumpkin pie spice.

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!
