What kind of cupcake would make my father have this look of confusion on his face?
And then tuck into it like he hadn't eaten in weeks?
The fact that this was no ordinary cupcake. It was a Pumpkin Pie cupcake,
complete with a tiny pumpkin pie nestled inside!
My friend, Susan, posted about them on her blog this past Friday. She found the recipe here. The minute I saw them I knew I had to make them. How could I not? They are adorable and sneaky with their little bits of pumpkin custard and flaky crust. Plus, they are delicious!
Now, I wonder how my dad will feel about apple pie cupcakes with vanilla bean icing, or blueberry pie cupcakes with lemon icing, or peach pie cupcakes with a cinnamon spice icing, or , well, you get the picture.
While they are a bit labor intensive, they are totally worth the effort. Plus, the look on the faces of those who take a bite is priceless. Priceless, I tell you!
Oh, and while your at Susan's blog, be sure to read her interview with the brilliant Susan Branch. It is just lovely.
