Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey Week! I hope it has been a FULLfilling one so far. If it has not been, try these tasty treats on for size, courtesy of Betty Crocker and a little cupcakespiration! They are called Praline Pumpkin Cupcakes - Betty suggests it in cake form, but after reading some reviews and knowing my audience, I decided to make them into cupcakes.

No muffin cups necessary. Simply simmer butter, whipping cream, and brown sugar and put it on the bottom of each muffin cup. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. A thin layer of the goo works just fine. Then mix the Duncan Heines (I prefer Duncan to Betty), eggs, water, oil, pumpkin, and pumpkin spice - and PRESTO! You have a delicious Thanksgiving treat!! Well, then add the cream cheese frosting....

Full recipe can be found here - Praline Pumpkin Cake

The recipe says to bake the cake for 41 minutes, but my cupcakes were done in about 15-17 minutes. For the cupcakes, you don't really need to let them cool for an hour... the normal 30 minutes is just fine.

Enjoy! Hope you have a festive holiday!
