When I think of Fall my mind immediately goes to the crisp air, fall leaves, and the delicious taste of pumpkin cupcakes. 

These easy to make cupcakes are full of that delicious pumpkin pie flavor and topped off with a sweet cream cheese icing that carries hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. 

Bring them to a Halloween party, Thanksgiving dinner, or just as a snack after playing in the leaves!
