I love cooking with Pumpkin! I also love cream cheese! These two ingrediants combined make a wonderful explosion of sweet flavor in your mouth! Here is a recipe you will love combining these two great flavors.

In a seperat bowl, blend together cream chesse, remaining sugar and egg.

  1. Jenn,
    We must be ont he same wavelength in relation to culinary creations, as I made some muffins with my baby squash and cream cheese in a similar vain. I will be showcasing them tomorrow, so do come by and check them out. I think you will approve.

    These look just as tempting, if only I could stick my finger in the screen and scoop up some of that cream. Yum.

  2. Shaheen,
    I will be stopping by to take a peek! Yes the cream makes them even more tempting!

  3. Mmm, yum! I will have to try this one.
