Not entirely sure how I came up with this one. It was a last minute Thanksgiving "uh-oh, what about dessert?" thing. But it was a hit! :)

This yummy cupcake filled the Test Kitchen with the comforting aromas of autumn! They're bursting with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spices. These cupcakes are moist with a slight crunch from the walnuts. The cream cheese frosting is perfect on top. No one will believe these started with a boxed mix... they taste like they're from scratch. Delicious! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
