Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes
I have another pumpkin recipe for you tonight. I had a pumpkin kind of week last week. I still have 2 more pumpkins to roast but am going to give it a break until we get closer to Thanksgiving before I share another one, I promise! This is similar to a pumpkin pie but without the crust, I topped it with a sweetened whipped cream that was flavored with? you guessed it Pumpkin Butter. I sure am glad I made that stuff, I am using it everywhere lately. I never realized it was that versatile…. LOL.
You could make these in a cupcake pan but if you do I would cut circles of parchment for the bottom and spray the pan really well so they will come out easier. I found the greatest pan a month ago for mini individual cheesecakes, it has removable circle bottoms. It worked perfectly for these pumpkin cupcakes. Don’t use paper liners, they won’t pull free cleanly. Silicone ones will work also.

- ¼ cup sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar

- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ¼ cup pumpkin butter or confectioner's sugar

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 cup muffin tins with silicone or use an individual cheesecake pan with removable bottoms.

- Add the flour, spices, salt, baking powder and baking soda to the mixture.
- Fill each muffin cup with ⅓ cup of the mixture.
- Bake for twenty minutes or until centers are set. Cool. Remove cupcakes from pan and refrigerate.
