Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
January 08, 2002

I'm a 20-yr-old college student home for the holidays, and I just used this recipe to make a birthday cake for my pumpkin-loving mother (who usually requests a pumpkin pie on her birthday, when everyone has had their fill of pie). It worked out great! I skipped the crumb topping, cooked the batter in two round cake pans and then used the rosting (raw) to frost the cake. There wasn't enough to completely cover the cake, but I frosted the top of one, than placed the other on top and frosted the top of that one. It looked like a big sandwich cookie and after a while, the frosting starts to ooze down the sides, making it look like an old-fashioned confection (very pretty). I used nonfat cream cheese and was worried about its ability to stand up to refrigeration, but it made it great! I also used applesauce instead of any shortening-- no one was the wiser. Thanks a bunch!
