Impossible Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

Probably by now everyone has had their pumpkin fix for the year. Just in case you haven't or if you're someone who bakes with pumpkin all year, give this recipe a try. These cupcakes are like mini pumpkin pies. I recently discovered how well pumpkin and chocolate chips go together when I made this cake. I added chocolate chips to a few of these cupcakes. With or without chocolate chips, these are a delicious and fun dessert!

  1. I did not get my fill of pumpkin last fall and hubby just informed me that he took the last muffin out of the freezer. I guess it's time to bake again!
