Cream Cheese Pumpkin Muffins Recipe

Oh!  Those Pumpkin Muffins at Starbucks are my absolute favorite right now!  The problem is I’m gonna go broke trying to buy them.  So, I decided to ramp up my original Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffin recipe and create something similar to what I was salivating over at Starbucks!  Please understand that these do not taste like Starbucks, but they are still really good and moist and give that extra cream cheese, sweet flavor.  Yum!
