With all of the holidays I have been doing quite a bit of baking. With the colder weather I have been craving warm spiced fall flavors. With family in town it and a long day of dancing in store for us on Simchat Torah I decided to make a special treat breakfast of pumpkin cream cheese muffins. The muffins were delicious. Light and moist with a nice pumpkin spice flavor they were exactly the treat I had been craving. They were good with the cream cheese filling, but I made some without and they were delicious too. I did not intend to make the muffins parve, but ended up with a shortage of regular cream cheese when I got distracted in the middle of making the recipe and ended putting in a whole recipe worth of spices and baking soda instead of the half recipe I was intending. Oops! The only option at that point was to go ahead with the whole recipe, so I made half of the muffins with parve cream cheese. It turns out that everyone liked the parve ones better. The toffuti cream cheese is softer than regular cream cheese, so it stayed creamier when the muffins were baked. A muffin and a huge glass of milk and we were ready to dance with the Torahs all morning long!
