Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

So today it all started for me...once you crack your first can of pumpkin it is like you just can't stop!!   My whole family loves all things pumpkin and now that I am packing lunches we have lots of muffins and squares to make for him to take in his lunch and for us to enjoy here.  Today's treat turned out a little more "fancy" than what I was going for.    My original plan was to make these pumpkin pie cupcakes but since I was planning on taking them to my friend, who just had the cutest little baby ever (I know I say that about all babies....but really she is sweet!),  I really needed to cook these in muffin liners.   Even though the recipe states "paper liners make it difficult to remove the cupcakes" I didn't listen and used them anyways.  The recipe was right it was very hard to get the liner off and the cupcakes didn't look as pretty as I was hoping, so I put my brain to good use and decided I would stuff the cupcake into a little mason jars and top with whip cream.   And because the cupcakes are so little I did two layers.

The family enjoyed this special treat.  They tasted a lot like a crustless pumpkin pie and some of them might have been a little too gooey for my liking.  So if I was to do this again I would bake maybe a little longer.  I did get 18 cupcakes out of the this recipe and the batch that I did make with my silicon liners came out prefect, so no more paper liners for this recipe...unless you want to look super fancy ;)
