Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins: My notes-- first off, the author does not mention this, but make sure you swirl them before it goes in the oven. Trust me. Second, these DO indeed taste like FALL. Decadent, rich, creamy, heavy. Which brings me to my next and final point: make these MINI muffins. The regular size (which we made) were way too rich for one person to eat in one sitting.
