Spicy Pumpkin Muffins

Hello Pinspired Recipe Readers!  
I'm Leslie and I'm so pleased to be contributing to Pinspired Recipes.  Heather and I "met" each other a while ago and bonded over the fact that we're both Canadian bloggers (a rarity I feel) and even better we live in the same Province!  So when I saw that she had started up this blog I emailed her right away begging asking her if I could come join the party.  

And since in Canada we are in FULL ON pumpkin mode 
I chose to make these Pumpkin Creamcheese Muffins from my "Things To Make" board.

I had a larger can of pumpkin than the recipe called for.  So my muffins were a little heavy on the pumpkin side. 
 I'll explain a little more later.

This is one of those recipes where you have to mix 
the dry and wet separately (read dirtying two bowls).


It's a nice thick batter that you spoon into the muffin tins.  
I like that.

Same with the cream cheese topper.  I liked that you didn't have to skimp on the cream cheese in this recipe.  I had plenty of of the second cream cheese batter to put on top of the muffins!


Favourite part?  Swirling!  
Anything that involves swirling makes it more delicious.


I topped some of the muffins with crushed pecans.  
I highly recommend it.  Next time I might even candy the pecans first and then put them on top!

So because I was a little heavy with the pumpkin these muffins are quite dense, they almost seem underbaked (they're not!)  
Next time I will definitely use the right amount of pumpkin.

Even so I still give my dense muffins a 4 out of 5 spoons.
