Love, love, love these!! Huge thanks go out to my good friend, Dana, for sending me this recipe. As soon as I read it, I knew I’d be making them the next day. Quick, easy and so yummy! And the best part is, you don’t even need frosting… that pretty swirl acts as a perfect cream cheese frosting. Attention co-workers: get ready for a Tuesday morning treat!

mmm, I’ll bet these were wonderful – love pumpkin + spice, and cream cheese can only make things better.

These look fabulous—similar to my favorite cupcakes, black bottom cupcakes. I have some leftover pumpkin that needs to be put to good use…

Can you use cream cheese icing instead of beating the cream cheese and adding the egg and sugar?
