How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. Place paper baking cups into 12 muffin pan cups or grease muffin pan cups; set aside.

    Combine all spread ingredients in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.

  5. STEP 5

    Spoon batter evenly into prepared muffin pan cups; spread batter to level. (Muffin cups will be full.) Bake 22-23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan to cooling rack.

I made these without the cream cheese spread and they were still fantastic. They were even better the next day!
