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: This cupcake is also delicious with a decadent Buttercream Frosting.
Enjoy!

How to Make Robynne's Blueberry Pie Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. CRUST
    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.
  2. CAKE & 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.
  3. FROSTING
    Add whipping cream to a large chilled bowl. Using a mixer, begin whipping the cream, increasing the speed as the cream thickens. Gradually mix in the pudding mix, extracts and powdered sugar. Whip until stiff peaks form.
    I recommend you adding the extracts a little at a time, to achieve your desired flavor preference.
  4. GARNISH (optional)
    I sprinkled a mixture of cinnamon and powered sugar, a dab of pie filling (no fruit) on top of frosting and finished with a fresh blueberry.

    Enjoy!
