I usually try to stay about 4 weeks ahead with the recipes, but being pregnant this fall, having Christmas season craziness and the giant speed bump that just hit our life set me back, so it's no joke when I say that this just came out of my oven.

I’m always on the lookout for a great new dessert. While I was perusing the new Smitten Kitchen cookbook I knew I had to make these ASAP. I started out rolling them and cutting them into snowflakes. It worked well, but just took a long time and resulted in lots of cookies. I pulled out the new cookie pans that my aunt got me and just pushed the dough in. It worked great and was fast, but resulted in significantly fewer cookies (which was good, because DH and I ended up eating almost all of them!)

My friend Melissa posted these cupcakes on Facebook and DH saw them. Since then he has done nothing but talk about how I should make these cupcakes. It’s not like I took a whole lot of convincing, so within a couple weeks I made them. And boy are we both glad I did. Pumpkin plus cream cheese plus maple= AWESOMESAUCE. The original recipe has a little different Maple frosting recipe that called for maple flavor. I wanted one that used real maple syrup so I visited my trusted source: Glorious treats.
