Apple Cobbler Cupcake

 Perfect Fall Dessert- Apple Cobbler Cupcakes

 The reason why I wanted to try out this recipe is because a few weeks ago we went with my mom to the apple orchard and got a huge bag of apples.  Well I've been trying to use all of them slowly and why not try an apple cupcake recipe?!  So here it is... Apple Cobbler Cupcakes for your viewing enjoyment :)
 I put quartered apples into the food processor and blended.  I left the skins on because I wanted that texture in the cupcakes.  I'm a texture addict so I really love a good savory cupcake :)

Next to create the cupcakes.
Recipe + Ingredients borrowed from the Cupcake Project... Thanks!

1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 C unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 C brown sugar
1/4 C sugar
2 eggs
1/2 C sour cream
1/4 tsp lemon extract
2 1/2 C apples, roughly chopped and loosely packed (large or small chunks)

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and ginger.
Beat butter and sugars in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
Beat in eggs, sour cream, and lemon extract until blended.
Mix in flour mixture.   Fold in apples.
Divide batter evenly among cupcake liners.
Bake at 350 F for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out of the cupcake clean.
Yields only 12-15 cupcakes!

This is how they turned out.  I had filled the cups pretty much to the brim and they didn't overflow at all.

Onto the Frosting.  The Cupcake Project suggests using a Pumpkin Pie frosting.. which is literally pumpkin pie piped onto the cupcake!! I decided to go with what I had on hand... and it was the traditional cream cheese frosting delight. 

1 (8oz) package cream Cheese frosting
3/4 stick butter
1 tsp vanilla
3/4C powdered sugar

Cream the Butter + Cream Cheese together first then add in vanilla + powdered sugar.  If it's too thick for you  add some milk one tsp at a time..... and... Viola! Little Heavenly Delights!
