Martha's Pumpkin Cupcakes

So, this morning I've been busy baking Pumpkin Cupcakes for "BOOing" my neighbors. This recipe was not in my Martha Stewart cupcake cookbook, but it IS a Martha Stewart recipe. The Pumpkin Cupcake in the cookbook sounded good, but I think I was short one ingredient and lo and behold, I had all the ingredients to make these! I did add 1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice to give it just a little more pumpkin zip, and again didn't bake them quite as long as recommended. They said to bake them for 20-25 minutes, but 17 minutes worked for me. I had my dear husband be my taste tester, and they were a HUGE hit. We almost can't decide if they are better than the snickerdoodle cupcakes from earlier this week. They were sooooooooo good. In the cupcake cookbook, they recommend topping them with a cream cheese frosting, but I didn't have any cream cheese. So, I googled a pumpkin buttercream frosting and was not disappointed! YUM-OOO! These will for sure be made again! Here's a link to the Pumpkin Cupcake recipe HERE and a link for the Pumpkin Buttercream Frosting HERE. Now get to "BOOing" your friends and neighbors!!!!

When are you going to share some of these delicious cupcakes with your dear old mom? They look so pretty, and I just want to eat one or two, or sample every one you make. You are getting quite talented at these.
