Recipe Box: Cheese Streusel Muffins

so on Sunday, on my way back to school, iHad the most scrumptious muffin! it was an Otis Spunkmeyer Cheese Streusel Muffin. omg. it was divine iTell ya.

so i've decided that iWant to try'n make my own muffins, Otis-style.

this recipe is a cream cheese muffin recipe, however the muffin iHad was made w Neufchatel cheese. And it was a streusel.


3 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
A pinch of salt
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. melted butter
1 c. milk

Sift first four ingredients together into a large mixing bowl. In blender mix cream cheese, eggs, vanilla and milk. Slowly add melted butter and continue blending until mixture is smooth.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients; add wet mixture and stir with a fork just until moistened. Pour into greased muffin tins. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Makes 1 dozen.

Im thinkin that the cream cheese shld be replaced w Neufchatel, and a streusel to be added on top of the muffins before baked.

For the streusel topping:
½ cup sugar
¼ cup and 1 tsp. flour
4 tbsp. butter, cubed
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon

To make the streusel topping, combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Mix together with a pastry blender or two forks until crumbly.

Idk how soon I'll make these, but anyone that does, pls share on how successful it was ;)
