  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour 18 muffin cups, or use paper liners.
  2. To make the filling: In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until soft. Add egg, vanilla and brown sugar. Beat until smooth, then set aside.
  3. For the streusel topping: In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Add butter and cut it in with a fork until crumbly. Set aside.
  4. For the muffin batter: In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Make a well in the center of flour mixture and add eggs, pumpkin, olive oil and vanilla. Beat together until smooth.
  5. Place pumpkin mixture in muffin cups about 1/2 full. Then add one tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture right in the middle of the batter. Try to keep cream cheese from touching the paper cup. Sprinkle on the streusel topping.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees F (195 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes.

This is basically the first thing I've ever baked successfully! Haha. I even got the cream cheese filling to work for the most part by trying it a different way for every group of six muffins(i...

These were very nice muffins (as my co-workers who just happily gobbled down a bunch can attest!) I'd make them again, but here's how I'd fine-tune the recipe: In the streusel, I'd use a little...

These are the prettiest muffins ever. When I openned the oven to check them, I said, "Wow!" These make a great presentation and would make a wonderful, heart-warming gift!
