Impossible Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

Do you love pumpkin pie?
I do. I know it is dense, but I love it.

A couple of weeks ago I was making some desserts for a fall dinner and wanted a pumpkin pie type dessert, but in smaller form, without the crust.

After searching on the net, I ran across this recipe and decided it would be the perfect thing.
Pumpkin pie in a cupcake.

There is a bit of flour in the batter and that somehow makes a sort-of crust around the outside, while the inside is pretty similar to the filling of a pumpkin pie.

I made these the day before and kept them in the fridge overnight.
I topped them with a dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream and they were ready to go!

I think these cupcakes are a great way to practice portion control over the holidays without giving up the traditional flavor and texture of a classic dessert.

There's no way I'd be practicing portion control, I'd just be reaching for more!

I just came across your blog, and I absolutely love your design (also, I was hooked when I saw these cupcakes). What a great idea to change up the pumpkin pie normality :)
