Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins

Crumb topping, pumpkin cake, and cheesecake…  Need I say more?  Oh, and it all comes packaged in nifty muffin.  Enough said. I haven’t baked muffins in eons.  There was a period of time when I was baking muffins every weekend.  I think I realized somewhere along the way that a muffin is essentially a cupcake without icing.  Cupcakes aren’t exactly healthy, especially not for breakfast.  Although cupcakes are perfectly healthy for dessert because I figure it’s like a small piece of cake, at least the way I cut cake.  😉 I’ve been dying to bake these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies so I finally …
