Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes With Cinnamon Whipped Frosting Recipe
- For Cupcakes -
- 1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
- 3 Eggs

Let's start by preheating the oven to 350*.
Grab your super cute in season cupcake wrappers and line those tins.
In a large bowl combine eggs, applesauce, vanilla, milk and pumpkin puree. Mix until well incorporated. This should be super smooth.
Sift in cake mix and mix on low speed until batter is free of lumps. Fill liners 3/4 of the way full for perfect sized cupcakes.
Bake for 17-20 minutes depending on your oven. Toothpick in center should come out clean. An oldie but goodie trick, works every time!
This Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes recipe will make 24 perfect bites!
Let’s make that cinnamon whipped frosting while our cupcakes cool off! We can’t frost a warm cupcake, right?
In your mixing bowl, whip cream cheese and powdered sugar until it’s super creamy. Again, we don’t want any lumps. Add vanilla, and whipping cream. Beat until you have nice stiff peaks. Yes, fine, you can go ahead and lick the beaters. I’ll wait. Good, right? Now pipe and decorate those Pumpkin Cupcakes as pretty as you’d like! Sprinkle with cinnamon and ENJOY!
I told you! Who says you have to make pies for holiday desserts? Truth? I couldn’t eat just one. And yes, I also licked the beaters and the bowl. Don’t tell the kids.
What’s you favorite holiday dessert?
