This little cupcake is actually called the Halloween Pumpkin Pecan Cupcake in the book and the description says that it is "pumpkin pie in a cupcake." They are so right! I didn't have high hopes for them when they came out of the oven as they looked a little funny. And instead of the Fresh Orange Juice Frosting that was used in the book I used my favorite cream cheese frosting and that was definitely the way to go.
One bite made believers out of all of us. This truly did taste like pumpkin pie rather than a pumpkin spice cake like so many do.
Absolutely fabulous cupcake that I will make again and again.
