Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Frosting

Today I want to share this AMAZING recipe with you! It's by none other than the incredibly talented Ina Garten....but it's soooo not a "celebrity chef recipe that no one in the universe can actually do" type of recipe--it's a you and me can do it kind of recipe.
{serves 12}
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 extra-large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup canned pumpkin purée (8 ounces), not pie filling
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Maple Frosting (recipe follows)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped Heath bars

Maple Frosting Ingredients:
6 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature (I used light and it worked great!)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon Maple Flavor
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups sifted confectioner's sugar

Step 1: Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.

Step 2:
In a large bowl (or mixer) whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vegetable oil.

Step 3:
Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture.

Step 4:
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Step 5:
Using a hand held or stand mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter using paddle attachment on low.

Step 6:
Add maple flavoring and vanilla, and mix. Slowly add the confectioner's sugar and mix until smooth.

Step 7:
Frost completely cooled cupcakes.

(yeah, this picture wasn't impossible to take by myself or anything :P )

Step 8:
Break up Heath Bar and sprinkle on top.

I took these to a girls' night and they were a huge hit! Perfect for all the holiday celebrations coming up or an alternative to pumpkin pie.
