Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

Want to hear something funny about Thanksgiving? I’m not allowed to make dessert. Me, the award-winning baker , cannot make nor suggest anything else other than pumpkin pie. Dad always makes the pie. He gets so excited too. The week before, he’ll “test” his recipe (the one he’s been using for the past how many years now) by making two pies. Then the night before Thanksgiving, he will make another two pies – one to eat Wednesday night and one to eat for Thanksgiving. I always ask why he just doesn’t make one pie. “But that’s what the recipe says.” “Cut it in half.” “Nah, we’ll eat both pies.”
