There are many things as a family we love this time of year but I got so excited when Sophie, my oldest daughter, told me her “tastebuds” love pumpkin muffins :) because so do mine.

These mini pumpkin muffins are the perfect amount of spice with a soft cream cheese glaze on top and can be served for breakfast or sneak them in a lunch box for an afternoon surprise.
