OMG Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes are individual portions of traditional pumpkin pie with great combination of texture and yummy pumpkin and spice flavor.
And as if it was by destiny, mu mother brought me a beautiful pumpkin which was surplus to her and she didn’t know what to do with it. And so, my first autumn pumpkin adventure began!
But, it was almost over very quickly, since preparing the pumpkin took too long, and that day, I was not really in the mood of spending the whole day in the kitchen. After all, when the smell of pumpkin began spreading, it was immediately clear that Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes would be on the table very soon.
And so, following the instructions of this recipe, of course, with a couple of compromises, beautiful, golden Cupcakes were on the table and the irresistible smell was spreading everywhere. But the price of this delicious desert was paid by my poor tongue, since I did not have the patience to wait for the Cupcakes to cool off. To tell you the truth, it was worth it!
In the end, to finish the whole thing off, I prepared cream and put it on my beautiful cups. Beautiful! It’s no wonder that the original name for this desert is “Irresistible Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes”. And you can imagine how I named mine! Well, of course, OMG Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes!
