I think I did a couple years ago. My mother mentioned them this past week that she loved it, but I haven't made it for myself since. Sounds like a great idea! I remember it being more 'wet' than the other cheesecakes but I like pumpkin pie so I'll probably like it just fine.

I reeeeeaaaallllyyyyy want to make some pumpkin ones tomorrow. Trying to figure out how much of what to put in them. I am worried they will be too wet so I think I will use protein powder.

Don't forget to let us know how they turned out! Did you decide to use the protein powder? I have one regular cream cheese muffin left and I'm so anxious for a pumpkin one now!

I wanted to try eggnog cheesecake, ever since somebody bumped Davian's recipe.
The problem is- no eggnog DaVinci. OK, so I need to get a little creative. First of all,
make the cream cheese muffins. Then try to get an eggnog flavor in those. Then move
on to a full-size cheesecake. I think they came out pretty good. I added about a tablespoon
of rum flavor and a teaspoon of nutmeg to the batter. Made up a mix of ground almonds
and butter, tamped a heaping teaspoon of crumbs into each of 12 muffin cups, tamped it
down real well and prebaked for about 8 minutes. Then I divided the cheese batter between
the cups and finished baking them. I don't know what DaVinci eggnog flavor tastes like, but
this is good- so in the interest of being a cheapskate I'll use this.

They turned out great!!! I DID use 2 scoops of PP. Just because the batter was pretty runny. The PP helped nicely!

Pami I can send ya a bottle of egg nog DaVincis! I have 3 of them! I'm afraid to run out during the cold months when they don't ship!

Dawn, I saw them at Kroger, Cream cheese blocks of 8oz for $1 each.
I try to restrict myself to 10 of them, though,once, I bought a whole case!
Don't know if you have Krogers in SC but check it out.

Oh, honey I will add it to my list!! I work there . But we may have different prices here in SC. I have a running list already. I go in at 4PM. I always buy out the cream cheese whenever and wherever I see them for $1 a block. That is a great buy and they take forever to go bad. Thanks for the heads up, I will check it out tonight when I get to work.

I hope you have them on sale too.
When I'm actually cooking and eating my own food, cream cheese is a STAPLE. I've had many, months past the exp date, and they were still fine.

Last week I bummed out and missed the big big sale, DZ large Eggs were 88c, Butter was dirt cheap, Almonds 2.99 ( I got myself there for the almonds. bought 10 lbs) Wings and thighs in the 1.50-2.80 range. I got some rotel and pumpkin, but realized, as much as folks hate 'em, the prices on these two canned items is better at Wally world.

Kroger HW Cream is up to $5 for a quart! I'm gonna start making the xtra trip to Walmart for $2.60 for the same size.

Still trying to convince myself to make some cheesecake. I'm just lacking that sweet tooth right now. But chocolate chip cookies can have me anytime!

Not on sale at my Kroger this week but that is fine because I stocked up when it was on the Mega sale--when you buy 10 items you get them for 99 cents each! I bought 10!! I am well stocked, but one cannot have too much cream cheese. I got 2 bags of those almonds you speak of. Great price!! I have not bought Kroger's cream in a while. I buy the Horizon organic when it goes to clearance. I am there almost every day and check on the price every single time I am there so I can snag every cream or half and half when it gets to clearance. I once bought 4 But organic for less than $2!!! Talk about good deal!! OH, and I stocked up on eggs when they were 77 cents each--with my discount.......70 cents!!! I have at least 10 dozen in the fridge right now!!! Thank goodness we have a small extra fridge.

Anyhow, back on topic....I cannot wait til next week when I can make some of these cream cheese muffins. Never thought to add pumpkin to them. I was thinking of adding some SF chocolate syrup, SF caramel syrup and a pecan or 2 for a turtle cheesecake muffin!! Yum!!! I still have to make the muffins because we all like ours so different. If I made a cheesecake it would be me eating it all!! P3 cannot get here soon enough!!

one year someone asked for a peanut butter cheesecake. I personally didn't care for it at the time, but it was pretty tasty, with a chocolate nut crust. I might make one again now that my tastes have changed. I like peanut butter more nowadays.

I used to make lemon with lemon juice but I got weird tastes.( I think it reacted with my aluminum muffin cups. I used lemon juice. you could try true lemon packets for a kick, they are strong and add no extra liquid.

I found this on another site and think it looks delightful for this time of year:

Spice Muffin with Cream Cheese Frosting and Filling

Combine:

2 cups of ground almonds ( I like to buy & use whole raw & grind them myself)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup splenda

Combine & mix well:

2 eggs
1/2 cup canola or another light oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

Add dry to wet all at once. You can add a little grated apple or carrot, 1/2 cup pumpkin or make them chocolate! It makes the carb count a little higher. While cooling I made the frosting-filling.

2 8 oz softend cream cheese
1/2 cup splenda
1 tsp vanilla extract
A tablespoon of sour cream or cream.(just enough for the right consistancy.

Blend with mixer.

When muffins are cool pipe in fill & frost. They taste better refrigerated and eaten the next day.

PghPALady -

I found a recipe for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins in a stack of recipes I've been wanting to try. I made them yesterday and they turned out really well. I thought I'd post the recipe in case you're still looking for a good one. (P.S. They're especially good with some home-made whipped cream!)

PUMPKIN CREAM CHEESE MUFFINS

1 8 oz. cream cheese
4 T. canned pumpkin
1 egg
1/4 C. Splenda
1 T. pumpkin pie spice
2 shakes of cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350. Soften cream cheese about 40 seconds in microwave. Add other ingredients and mix well with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour into a cupcake pan lined with 6 foil cupcake papers. Bake for 20 minutes in a water bath. Leave in oven with door open for 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate
