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

Combine pumpkin, 1/2 cup melted butter and eggs in another bowl; stir until well mixed. Stir pumpkin mixture into flour mixture just until combined.
Spoon batter evenly into prepared muffin 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.
Combine 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in bowl. Dip tops of warm muffins in melted butter and then sugar-cinnamon mixture. Serve warm with cream cheese spread.
