These muffins are full of sugar, spice, and everything nice. Oh, and they're stuffed with cream cheese! They are delicious anytime of year, but especially as the weather gets cool and we all start craving those nostalgic, warming spices. No mixer required for these babies either. Let's make some!
Keeping this post short and sweet, just like these muffins!
My birthday month is here, and along with it, the always premature "Happy Fall, Y'all," Pumpkin Spice everything craze. Stop. Just please wait until it's actually fall and it's actually pumpkin season, people!! September is the beautiful in-between month, when we say goodbye to summer, but we still have a few delicious tomatoes and peaches lingering at the markets. Apples start to come into season. Mornings get cool and crisp. The light changes. Slower cooking dishes find their way into our kitchens. Warm spices find their way into our baked goods (like these cinnamon sugar cream cheese muffins). I love it. I love late summer/early fall. Pumpkins will get their chance come October. Let's just enjoy what we have right now and not rush anything, okay?
I don't mean I'm not excited about fall; It's my favorite season and I've always identified as a fall baby even though technically I'm a summer baby. I just love to experience all the little changes as they come rather than jumping ahead. One way I satisfy my autumnal cravings without going pumpkin crazy is with these sugared and spiced beauties. I started making them a few years ago, but this was the first year I shoved cream cheese into their soft little middles. It was a good idea.
Of course, if cream cheese isn't your thing feel free to leave it out. They will still be delicious!
