  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened

Streusel Topping

Here's how to make it:

  2. In another bowl, beat the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Fold in the apples. 
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. 
  4. In another bowl, beat the cream cheese, cinnamon and sugar together until smooth. 
  5. Put cupcake baking liners into 12 muffin tin cups. Put about 1 tablespoon of the batter into the bottom of each cup. Top with about 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese. Divide the remaining batter between the cups. 
  6. To make the streusel, put all the ingredients into a bowl. Mix together with a fork or your fingers until it looks like crumbs. Top each muffin with some of the streusel. 
  7. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 20 minutes.

Anyone actually made these? I was confused by no milk or oil in batter and I had way too much topping . They are taking closer to 30 minutes at 350. Just wondering if anyone else had similar results.

These were excellent. I only had half a cup of butter so I replaced the strudel typing with cinnamon and brown sugar. Even my husband, who hates all fruit, loved them. 10/10 will make again.
