Welcome back PSL...and a giveaway!

Even though it is only September 5th...today feels like the first day of fall.  Why you ask? Because today was the first day of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte season!  To celebrate I made some crazy delicious pumpkin cream cheese muffins!

Your line-up...

Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F
Start by mixing the icing sugar with the cream cheese...beat until smooth.

Roll it up tightly in saran
  and then in tinfoil.  Put it in the freezer for at least 2 hours.

Add all of your dry ingredients to a bowl, and mix them up.

In a separate bowl add all of your wet ingredients and mix them up.

Add your wet to your dry...

and mix until combined...DO NOT OVERMIX.

Add a little bit of batter to the bottom of each muffin liner.

Add a slice of the cream cheese mixture.

Top with batter, and throw into the oven for 22 minutes.


Cream cheese mixture
1cup icing sugar
1 package of cream cheese

    My fav thing about fall is there are no tornado warnings! (and I love taking Lexie out for halloween). The colors are my least favorite (poop brown, booger green ..i could go on)

    My other fav would be if Stacey invited me over for a pumpkin cream cheese muffin....im just sayin..

  8. My fav things about Fall are the changing of the colors of the leaves from the summer months and the amazing smell outside first thing in the morning : )
