Pumpkin Spice Muffin with Cream Cheese Frosting

Finally feels like fall, and nothing says fall like pumpkin spice muffins.  I love the way the house smells from the mix of spices so fragrant, and the touch of sweetness that the sugar coating gives them along with the velvety smooth frosting is the perfect Sunday brunch treat!

These muffins are so good you’ll want to make them all year round.
