Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

pumpkin cupcakesWe’re continuing the pumpkin theme for fall with yummy cupcakes!

Naomi says, Every month, I attend a live book club at my library. I love bringing fresh baked goods to them and my library staff. It allows me to try out new recipes for the blog and not have them stay at my house to call out to me.

While speaking to the library manager, she talked about her love of anything pumpkin. I remembered seeing this recipe while on Pinterest and thought this would be a perfect time to try it, while giving her a nice treat. It originally was on Taste of Home, which is one of my favorite food magazines.

These cupcakes were even better than what I thought they would be. They were moist and the frosting on the cupcakes were unbelievable. They were even pretty simple to make as well. The recipe garnered about 24 cupcakes.
