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.

How to Make Robynne's Blueberry Pie Cupcakes

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!
