Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes
Earlier today, I shared our Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe because I was baking these yummy pumpkin cupcakes for us to enjoy for after dinner dessert. It’s fall so apple and pumpkin desserts are always a hit with my family.
My daughter is our biggest pumpkin fan. She was the first to request some fall pumpkin desserts. I made her these super easy Pumpkin Pie Cookies and she was totally ecstatic and thought they were the BEST pumpkin cookies she has had. I know she is really going to label these cupcakes as the BEST pumpkin cupcakes that she has had.
These cupcakes are not “cakey” like a typical cupcake. They are not the exact texture of pumpkin pie. I say right in-between. They are “damp” like a pumpkin pie but not as damp. I am not explaining them too well. Trust me, they are over the top delish and perfect with the whipped cream on top.
I am so excited at how yummy these turned out that they’ve officially made my Thanksgiving day dessert table list. My hubby just enjoyed two of them before heading out to pick up the kiddos from school. He agrees that they will be perfect for the holiday and I will need to make a couple more batches this fall. I think he even commented that they may even be his favorite pumpkin dessert.
These pumpkin cupcakes can be made so quickly and do not require many ingredients. I liked that there was no need to make a separate icing because whipped cream works perfect on top. The scent of fall was filling my house as soon as these guys hit the oven. Perfect for putting you in a fall sort of mood.
