Commence the drooling. I discovered these treats last fall when I was perusing through one of my Barefoot Contessa cookbooks, so I decided to make them on a whim. They were a HUGE hit, I must have made them four times before the year's end.
Per usual, I made a couple of changes to the recipe to make it my own. I'm not a huge fan of nutmeg so I removed it from the recipe, I also decided to add caramel and chopped pecans.
These cupcakes are the perfect start to fall, not to mention the fact that they make the whole house smell like pumpkin deliciousness.
