Ring in the season and upcoming holidays with our sweet mini pumpkin pie cupcakes!
These fun mini-sized treats literally taste like you’re biting into a slice of homemade pumpkin pie.
Mini Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes
Much different than a typical pumpkin cupcake, these are really mini pumpkin pies. Hand-held, bite-sized, bitty pumpkin pies.
Ingredients or Variations
PUMPKIN What makes these cupcakes so rich & flavorful is the addition of pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. The little cupcakes rise up during baking and then fall slightly when they cool into a pumpkin pie consistency.
TOPPING The best way to frost them is with homemade whipped cream or whipped topping.
PRO TIP: No candied nuts? No problem, toast nuts in a sauté pan for a few minutes and then let them cool. This makes them extra crunchy and really brings out their flavor!
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes
Pumpkin pie cupcakes are an easy treat that are ready to pop in the oven in just minutes!
- Whisk dry ingredients together. Mix remaining ingredients in another bowl.
- Combine wet and dry ingredients until smooth.
- Fill cupcake tins evenly and bake according to the recipe below until cupcakes are set.
- Let the cupcakes cool about 10 minutes in the pan. Remove and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
- Top with whipped cream and serve.
- Pumpkin pie cupcakes are very moist so the best way to store them is in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Put a slice of bread inside the container to absorb excess moisture. They should keep about 3 days.
- Pumpkin pie cupcakes can also be frozen (without the whipped cream topping.) They’ll keep well in a zippered bag with the date written on the outside, or in a sealed container. Add whipped cream just before serving.
