Snickerdoodle Crupcakes

Snickerdoodle Crupcakes with Cream Cheese FrostingSoft cinnamon sugar cupcakes with a hidden surprise!  A luscious croissant baked right in the cupcake and topped with cinnamon cream cheese frosting.  These Snickerdoodle Crupcakes are easily my new favorite mash-up dessert!

Snickerdoodle Crupcakes with Cream Cheese FrostingI’m so excited about these.  Yes, I often get excited about baked goods, but these are awesome!  Think of a soft snickerdoodle cookie combined with a buttery croissant, then smothered in cinnamon cream cheese frosting like a cinnmon roll.  Best breakfast ever, right?

I’ve always loved the idea of hybrid desserts or dessert mash-ups.  There’s  of course the coveted cronut, the cruffin (burglars even broke in and stole the recipe!), and also the Brookie.  I even morphed sweet potato pie into baklava.  It was a memorable experience.  Just a quick shout out…one of my favorite bloggers wrote all about mash-ups.

I. Can’t. Stop. Watching.

Pecan Pie Pumpkin Cupcakes

Pecan Pie Pumpkin Cupcakes filled with Pecan Pie Filling and topped with Cream Cheese Frosting - www.yummycrumble.comLuscious moist pumpkin cupcakes stuffed with pecan pie filling and topped with cream cheese frosting.  It’s the ultimate triple threat.  Let these Pecan Pie Pumpkin Cupcakes kick off the holiday season!

The holidays have officially started at our house.  Halloween decorations are up already (Oliver calls it his spooky house), I’m baking with nothing but Fall flavors and listening to Ella Fitzgerald’s Swinging Christmas.  Yes, I start Christmas music before Halloween.  Call me crazy, but I don’t think I will ever tire of it!  The rain has been coming in more lately, and thank God,  it’s also bringing cooler weather with it. Cooler weather = dipping a few degrees down in temperature.  Hey, I’ll take whatever I can get!

Pecan Pie Pumpkin Cupcakes filled with Pecan Pie Filling and topped with Cream Cheese Frosting - www.yummycrumble.comOne of my all time favorite desserts during this time of year is definitely crunchy, gooey, nutty pecan pie.  Specifically chocolate chip pecan pie.  It’s my downfall when I’m watching my muffin top.  The muffin top usually ends up turning into a bundt top, but let’s not get into that.  Enough about me.  Let’s get to these Pecan Pie Pumpkin Cupcakes!  I took my favorite pumpkin cupcake recipe and after baking, filled them with an easy pecan pie filling.  I just baked the pie without the crust.  After all, we just need the good stuff.
