Pie Cupcakes (not mini pies)



I was getting ready for our holiday party and planning out desserts that were easy to make and would please a crowd and I came across some amazing recipes that I just had to share with you!  (I think my favorite is the Chocolate Bourbon Pecan!)

Cherry Pie Cupcakes

Cherry-Pie-Cupcakes-754x1024.jpgThis is recipe is coming to you from Lizzy over at YourCupofCake.com

She featured this recipes and the photos in her cookbook – that you can of course go grab on Amazon!

Each cupcake features a white cake mix with a real cherry nestled in to the center.

Then she finishes it off with a graham cracker buttercream frosting to make a faux pie crust.  And uses the red M&M’s to make it look like a cherry pie.

Key Lime Cupcakes

KEY-LIME-PIE-CUPCAKES.jpgThese cupcakes from The Domestic Rebel are AMAZING.  Surprisingly enough, they are a hit with the younger kids in my family that love the tangy-ness of the limes.

They have an amazing key lime filling in the center, and then are topped with a think key lime pie frosting and then topped off with sprinkles of honey graham crackers for that last hint of a delicious pie!

Apple Pie Cupcakes

Apple-Pie-Cupcakes-1.jpgCincy Shopper shared this amazing recipe for Apple Pie Cupcakes that is just the right combination of sweet and fruity.

These delicious cakes are filled with Apple Pie Filling.

Then topped with a cinnamon buttercream frosting.

And garnished with a slice of apple.

Seriously!  These are the cupcake sister to a traditional apple pie.

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie Cupcakes

Chocolate-Bourbon-Pecan-Pie-Cupcakes-with-Butter-Pecan-Frosting-9.jpgThis recipe from Half-Baked Harvest is not the simpliest in the world to make, but it is sooooo worth the time and love that goes into making them.

The chocolate bourbon cupcake is made with a whole cup of bourbon!

Then filled with a pecan pie filling…

Then the pecan pie filling is thickened on the stove to make it stiff enough to sit in the center of the cake…

Then topped with with a butter pecan frosting…

And bourbon glazed roasted pecans…
