To really enjoy the fall season, I believe you must taste it! These little bites of fall are just perfect for tasting and enjoying. I passed them out to my neighbors, and brought them to small group. My hubby ate two of them, and said they were delicious. I personally do not like pumpkin, (I know…I”m not normal) so I did not actually eat them, but they smelled amazing.
Putting everything together, so these can be enjoyed whenever you want them. My KitchenAid was extremely helpful making this recipe, mixing everything for me to save my arms for doing all the work. (I did arm workouts this morning, and they were hurting all day long.)
When adding eggs always do it one at a time. To do this have a small container to put the egg in once cracked. This way if the egg happens to be bad, it’s not already added to the batter, or part of the egg shell falls in, you’re not searching for it.
On top of the wet ingredients add all the dry ingredients. This saves an extra bowl from having to be washed. Yea!
Mix the wet and the dry together, and just watch it all come together.
Using the Small Cookie Scoop, fill each muffin cup up with just one scoop. It works so perfect on these mini cupcakes. Once cupcake pan is filled place in oven and cook until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
While the cupcakes are baking now is the opportune time to make the frosting…or clean the kitchen…never mind just make the frosting. I save all the cleaning for the very end, except this bowl and mixer because it still had cupcake batter stuff still on it.
Add the butter and cream cheese, mix well. Then add the powdered sugar, please do this on a low speed, or powdered sugar will be everywhere! (I doubled my recipe so that’s why in the picture there is more than 12 Tablespoons of butter.)
Whisk until everything becomes light and fluffy. Don’t forget to add the cinnamon and vanilla.
Once done let the cupcakes cool on a wire rack. Let them cool completely before frosting.
Once frosted, enjoy them! If you have too many why not meet some of your own neighbors. I’m living proof that baking is a sure way to break the ice. Go out there and share some sweetness!
