I wasn't sure I could create a cupcake my son enjoyed more than my Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes, but it looks like I was wrong. Here is my take on Blueberry Pie...Cupcake Style.

Note: If you prefer something lighter than the butter cream frosting, please see the recipe and directions for Whipped Cream Frosting on my Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes on this site.

Ingredients

CRUST

1 pkg
cinnamon graham crackers crumbs (9 crackers)
1/2-3/4 stick

FILLING

blueberry pie filling (approx. 1 tsp per cupcake)

CAKE

1 box
white cake mix
3 tsp
blueberry extract
2 tsp
butter extract

FROSTING

1 c
butter, softened
3 c
powdered sugar
2 Tbsp
half & half
1 tsp
clear vanilla
2 tsp
blueberry extract
1/2 tsp
butter flavor extract
1/8 tsp

1/4 tsp
cream of tartar

Step-By-Step

1CRUST
Line standard muffin tins with paper liners.
Mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter and mix together thoroughly, either using a food processor or crush with mallet in large ziplock bag. The mixture should stick when you pinch the crumbs but still stay light a fluffy when broken apart. Place one tablespoon of graham cracker crumbs in each cupcake liner and press down, forming a compact crust. Bake for 4-6 minutes until the crust turns a slight golden brown.
2CAKE & FILLING
Prepare cake mix as directed. Stir in extracts until well incorporated.
Fill cupcakes liners 1/2 full with cake batter. Add 1 teaspoon of pie filling on top of batter, then finish filling cupcakes about 3/4. Be careful not to overfill.
Bake as directed. Cool completely.
3FROSTING
Add all of the frosting ingredients to a large bowl and mix until fluffy. I recommend you adding the extracts a little at a time, to achieve your desired flavor preference.
4GARNISH (optional)
I sprinkled a mixture of cinnamon and powered sugar on top of frosting and finished with a fresh blueberry.

Enjoy!
