    List of Ingredients

    ◦ Paper muffin liners or baking spray with flour
    ◦ 1 cups (about 7 ounces) all-purpose flour
    ◦ 1 teaspoon baking soda
    ◦ 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ◦ teaspoon kosher salt
    ◦ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ◦ teaspoon ground ginger
    ◦ 1 15-ounce can pumpkin
    ◦ 2 large eggs
    ◦ cup (4 ounces) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
    ◦ 1 cups granulated sugar, divided
    ◦ 1 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
    ◦ 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
    ◦ 1 large egg yolk


    Preheat oven to 375 F. Place 18 paper liners in two 12-cup muffin trays, or coat two 12-cup muffin trays with baking spray.

    Whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and ginger in a large bowl. Whisk together pumpkin, eggs, butter, 1 cups of the sugar, and 1 teaspoon of the vanilla in a medium bowl. Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture, and whisk until just blended. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (about per muffin cup).

    Stir together cream cheese, egg yolk, and remaining cup sugar and teaspoon vanilla in a small bowl, until blended. Dollop about 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture onto pumpkin batter in each muffin cup; swirl gently with a wooden skewer. Bake in preheated oven until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 18 to 22 minutes. Cool muffins in muffin tray 10 minutes; remove and serve warm, or transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Makes 18 servings
