Cream Cheese Raspberry Muffins Recipe

Everyone loves these moist, cake-like muffins flavored with raspberries and walnuts. The sweet drizzle of icing makes them pretty enough to serve guests. —Phyllis Schmalz, Kansas City, Kansas

"Delicious muffins! I doubled the recipe (used a bit more cream chese, 8 ounces since that was the size of container I bought), used half a cup of wheat flour and a cup of white AP, frozen raspberries (chopped up a bit first), and left out the nuts. Then I made a crumble topping with some graham cracker crumbs, a bit of flour, and some brown sugar and put it on top in place of the icing in this recipe. This is going to be one of my new favorite muffin recipes.

Next time, I'm making a triple batch and freezing most of them to pull out later--just as tasty, but then I don't have to bake them as often!"

"These were very moist and delicious. I did not have any buttermilk on hand and used half and half instead. I am also not a fan of nuts so left them out. I brought these to work and they were gone in a flash. Recipe would work well with any other berries if you cannot find raspberries."

"Something went wrong, they came out horrible that I had to toss them in the garbage. Tasted sour, never looked like a muffin. What could hve happened? This is the 2nd receipe that I have tried with buttermilk & it just doesn't come out right.

"Too much trouble?? Are you kidding me? These were sooo easy AND they were delicious! Took them to a meeting of my writer's critique group and they disappeared (and there's only 3 of us)...I had to promise to bring extra next time because the hostess's daughter was sad she didn't get to have one :)"

Make them, hide them and savour them all to yourself!"
