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.

    I see you’ve linked up this great looking recipe at the You Gotta Love it Tuesday link party. I’d love for you to come share it on my new link party – Required Ingredient Recipe Link Party – that just went live. Every Sunday I feature a different ingredient and this week it is pumpkin.

    Cupcakes are so great and a good alternative for people who don’t want to make pie.

    I hope you’ll stop by and share!
