Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Butter

Thanks to my friend JoAnn who left a can of Libby's Pumpkin on my door step, I was finally able to bake some pumpkin muffins!  I had searched pretty much every grocery store around town and couldn't find it for weeks, but JoAnn came to my rescue.  What a friend!  I'll even have some left over to add to my oatmeal this week - so good.

These muffins are great by themselves, but the cinnamon cream cheese butter makes them even better.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
Recipe from Nest of Posies

1 2/3 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 T pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
1 cup Libby's pure pumpkin
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together.  Mix wet ingredients into another bowl,
Combine all ingredients and add chocolate chips.
Scoop into lined muffin tins with an ice cream scoop.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Butter

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
4 T butter, softened
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 T confectioners sugar

Beat cream cheese and butter together until smooth.  Add cinnamon and confectioners sugar.
Beat until all ingredients are combined.

Spread onto muffins and eat - YUM!
