Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Sunday, October 24, 2010 at 12:10 PM - Posted by Megan - (2) comments

Autumn has officially fallen on the Big Apple and to celebrate the harvest season, I enjoy filling up my kitchen with the warm, comforting smells of fall-inspired treats. For my Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes, I zest up creamy pumpkin with a blend of savory spices, mix in chopped walnuts for added texture and top each little cake with a dollop of my Cream Cheese icing (recipe below) before decorating. I hope these pumpkin-y goodies become one of your new fall favorites. Enjoy!
