Norma's Pumpkin Cream Cupcakes

Norma DeRemer


I've made the chocolate cream filled cupcakes for years and with the Holidays just around the corner I thought I'd try something different by using pumpkin. Ths turned out so moist. I'm for sure going to make these little guys when friends and family come to visit during the Holidays this year.
