Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Bring on fall! My kiddos all LOVE pumpkin (so do I), so with the cooler temperatures making it feel like fall suddenly, I was ready to make these. They were much better after they sat for a few hours. The flavors meshed and an added bonus was the frosting being set and less messy to eat. So next time I will plan a little more in advance, these are sure to appear again at our house soon!
Recipe from: Stephanie's Kitchen

makes 12 muffins

For the muffins:
3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup pureed pumpkin
For the Crumble:
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoons melted butter
For the glaze:
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 ounces softened cream cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray regular muffin in with non stick spray.

3. Using a mixer, mix the butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Alternate adding the dry ingredients and the milk and cream. Add pumpkin puree. Do not overmix.
4. Divide batter evenly between the muffin tins, filling to the very top and a little over.
5. In a small bowl, mix together the ingredients for the crumble. Crumble on top of each muffin batter. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until cooked through and lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly.
