INSTRUCTIONS

 

For the crumble:

  1. Add flour, both sugars, pumpkin pie spice and ground cinnamon to a food processor. While on, cut the butter into cubes and add until the mixture resembles wet sand. Add to a bowl and refrigerate until needed.

For the filling:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese on medium high until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Add in the granulated sugar, vanilla and egg and mix until combined. Add to a bowl and refrigerate until needed.

For the muffins:

  1. Add melted butter, oil, both sugars, vanilla extract and eggs to a large bowl. Whisk until evenly combined. Whisk in the pumpkin puree, then add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon pumpkin pie spice, milk and salt and whisk until evenly incorporated.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°. Add muffin liners to a muffin pan. Scoop in muffin batter filing about ⅔ of the way full. Remove the filing from the fridge and place into a piping bag fitted with a medium round tip. Pipe about 2 tablespoons of filling into each muffin. Alternatively you can simply scoop the filling on top of the batter.
  3. Top with crumble and bake for 5 minutes. Without opening the oven, turn the heat down to 350° and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until baked through.
