Here in the midwest, autumn came out of nowhere. Suddenly, we're wearing our cardigans, we've pulled out our boots, and the trees have turned auburn and gold overnight. I love fall. I'm one of those girls who loves to snuggle and watch movies, with pumpkin scented candles, drinking pumpkin lattes with soy. I guess you could say I'm a pumpkin addict :) So over the weekend, I messed up the kitchen (thank you, Judd for cleaning up!) and whipped up my favorite autumn cupcakes: Pumpkin Pie Spice with Cinnamon Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting. YUM! Making these from scratch is certainly worth the work, so today I'm sharing my recipe to welcome fall ♥
It's my personal belief that organic ingredients not only taste better, but keep you feeling good. It doesn't have to be expensive. I bought most of my ingredients from Trader Joe's. Check them out if you haven't- it's really a fantastic store. Also, instead of finding a million spices and mixing them up, try Pumpkin Pie Spice from Mountain Rose Herbs. I got a big bag fairly cheap from them, and I LOVE their web store. They have a fine selection of organic products at wonderful prices. And you don't have to be in Oregon to get them! SO brew some hot tea, look this recipe over, and if you feel the urge, get to baking!
