How to Make Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the first 5 ingredients with mixer until well blended. Spoon into 24 paper lined miffin cups.
  2. Bake 20-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely.
  3. Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Gradually beat in powdered sugar. Blend in cinnamon and spread over the cupcakes.
  4. Store any uneaten cupcakes in refrigerator.
