    soursugar's Note:

    This is my version of a recipe I found a couple of years ago. It is light and fluffy with rich, sweet and spicy flavour. I highly recommend using: Special Pumpkin Pie Seasoning for Hillvilla Pumpkin Pie for the Pumpkin Pie Spice but whatever recipe or store bought version you like will do. It is really important for the frosting that the cream cheese and butter be at room temperature. I recommend leaving them out over night or for at least 6 hours before making the frosting. This recipe also makes great mini-cupcakes. Just make sure to reduce the baking time slightly.

      These are absolutely fantastic! My whole family loved them! I did make the special pumpkin pie spice as suggested and that was fabulous, as well. The only change I made was to substitute applesauce for the oil plus one T of oil. Great recipe! I will definitely make these again!

      These are wonderful. I've never had such beautiful cupcakes before I frosted them - they came out very well. The frosting is very yummy too. Cupcake and frosting are a great pair! Very moist and flavorful. I had extra batter so I made 12 mini cupcakes in addition to the 12 regular cupcakes. Mini cupcakes baked in about 9-11 minutes.

      Just what I needed to use up some homemade pumpkin puree! Made about 20 mini muffins and did use the optional spice in the frosting. Made for PAC 09. Thanks for sharing!
