Make it Monday: Pumpkin cupcakes with Pumpkin Spiced Icing

Hey everyone! Did you notice I didn't post for Thursday or Friday!? Oops! Totally forgot...I have been so busy lately it has been kinda crazy. I will post this week I promise!!
Friday night Mike's family had us over for dinner and pumpkin carving!! I wanted to make something with pumpkin and decided on these pumpkin cupcakes. I just searched Google and found them at Gina's Skinny Recipes
Pumpkin Cupcakes with Pumpkin Spiced Cream Cheese Icing
  • 18.25 oz Betty Crocker Golden Vanilla Super Moist Cake Mix*
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup canned 100% pure pumpkin
  • 1 cup water
For the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 8 oz Philadelphia 1/3 fat cream cheese (do not use fat free)
  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin (canned is fine)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 5 tbsp packed brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake wrappers.
Combine cake mix and pumpkin spice in a large bowl.  
Add pumpkin puree and water, mix about 2 minutes.
Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake about 20 - 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. For the frosting, combine the cream cheese, pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar until smooth. You can use a spatula to ice the cupcakes or pipe them which may require making more frosting.
Here are mine (not as nicely decorated...hahahah)
They were delicious! Very Fall!!!
