neighborhoods in search of loot. We have quite a few little devils, minions, superheroes and princesses come to our door. In the olden days (when I was a kid) we would get homemade treats a lot. Unfortunately, in this day and age, that isn't possible to do with trick or treaters today.
My nephew got married this past weekend, and instead of a wedding cake, my mom and I made cupcakes and decorated them. There was chocolate, lemon and pumpkin spice cupcakes and they were a hit. Mom did the chocolate and lemon ones and I did the pumpkin spice. They were very easy. I used a package of Betty Crocker Spice cake mix and added a can of pumpkin to it - easy, right? I baked them a little longer than called for as the pumkin adds more bulk and moisture. Then topped it with cream cheese frosting (followed the Philadephia Cream Cheese recipe found on their website) and decorated with a icing rose and leaves. They were a hit!
On last year's blog, I posted a recipe for pumpkin-raisin-oatmeal cookies and I'm going to make more this week. Yum!
What is your favorite pumpkin recipe? I'd love it if you'd share - or just send the goodies!
Trick or Treat!
