Cream Cheese Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Bread

   A family from church was super sweet to share some of their frozen fresh pureed pumpkin with us, and I was dying to try it out. What better use than PUMPKIN BREAD?!

Note to self: Learn to puree fresh pumpkin next Fall!  WOW, big difference!

  You will notice that this recipe calls for Cinnamon Chips. Word on the street is, that you cannot find Cinnamon Chips except at Christmas time.  Because I learned this tidbit last December, I had Dale buy me extra bags.  However, if you did NOT stock up on Cinnamon Chips, never fear, this bread is decent without them as well.
