I used to always dread Fall because it meant the temperatures would drop and the excitement of summer was coming to an end. But nowadays, I’ve started to embrace the fall months.
Fall means I have the perfect excuse to bake - and that means EVERYTHING pumpkin. Especially pumpkin desserts. Who’s with me????
And these pumpkin muffins with cream cheese glaze just might be my new favorite treat. They’re moist, not too dense and packed with flavor thanks to:

The pumpkin muffins come together in no time, and there’s no mixer needed. So it’s definitely an easy muffin recipe.
Then the cream cheese glaze makes them just a little extra special.

The tangy taste of the cream cheese pairs perfectly with the pumpkin spice flavor of the muffins.
These muffins are delicious for breakfast, a mid-morning snack or afternoon treat. And with a delicious mug of coffee - you definitely can’t go wrong.
