  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 8oz pks cream cheese, softened

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature and lightly beaten

3. Place approximately 1 tablespoon into each cup and press down with bottom of round glass or with hands.
4. Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment, or a hand mixer and large bowl, cream together cream cheese and sugar until creamy with no lumps. Add in vanilla and mix.
5. Add in eggs, one at a time, and mix until combined.Add in sour cream and continue to blend until fully mixed.
6. In medium bowl, combine pumpkin puree and remaining spices. Mix until combined, and then add 1/2 cup of cheesecake mixture. Continue to mix until no lumps exist.
7. Fill liners with cheesecake mixture until almost to the top, as they do not rise much. Add a couple dots of pumpkin mixture to each cupcake, and, using a toothpick, swirl mixtures to create a pretty design.
8. In medium bowl, combine all streusel ingredients using a fork until even and crumbly. Sprinkle crumbs on top of cupcakes.
9. Bake in preheated oven until set, approximately 40 minutes. Rotate pan halfway through baking process.
10. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Refrigerate until completely chilled, and then serve.
