These moist cupcakes are full of spice and a creamy pumpkin taste, along w/ the tart flavor of cranberries, yum! And the cinnamon cream cheese frosting just makes these cupcakes even more delicious.

How to Make Cranberry-pumpkin spice cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 375. Spray 24 muffin cups w/ cooking spray or use muffin liners. Sift together flours, 1 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, allspice, baking powder and baking soda into a lg bowl.
  2. In another lg bowl, Beat 1/2 cup butter, sugar and brown sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after adding each one. Add milk and pumpkin puree. Beat in flour mix until just combined. Stir in cranberries. Spoon batter into muffin cups, about 1/4 cup each muffin cup.
  3. Bake 25 mins, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in powdered sugar, slowly. add vanill and cinnamon.
