Pumpkin Cheese Muffins / Thanksgiving 2013

Previously I posted a recipe for Pumpkin Muffcakes. I wanted to add the Pumpkin Cheese Muffin recipe for Thanksgiving.
I can't seem to get enough pumpkin this time of year and I know I'm not alone.
I have so many muffin recipes for Thanksgiving, it's going to be hard to choose for the menu.

1 C pumpkin puree, ( not pumpkin pie pumpkin)
3 TBS sour cream
2 eggs
1/2 C (1stick) butter, melted
2 C flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 C dark brown sugar
1 1/2 C grated cheddar cheese
fresh chopped thyme

Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with vegetable cooking spray

In a bowl, whisk:
sour cream
Whisk well
Whisk well

In a separate bowl, whisk:
baking powder
cayenne pepper
black pepper
brown sugar
Whisk well
Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients
Fold in 1 C cheese

Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups
Sprinkle tops with remaining cheese and fresh thyme

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, until golden brown and a paring knife comes out clean in the center.
Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes
Remove muffins to a wire rack and cool completely, or serve immediately, warm!

Peace in the Kitchen!
