Today I made Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. They were for a co-worker who is on Weight Watchers and doesn't bake. These cupcakes are so easy to make and so is the frosting and the BEST part is that they're only 4 points. I've been on Weight Watchers since last August and have found so many amazing and yummy recipies that I thought I should start sharing some.
The cupcakes consist of:
(1) box spice cake mix
(1) can packed pumpkin
Mix the 2 ingredients together with a mixer and fill muffin tins that have been lined 2/3 full. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until done.
While they're cooking I made the icing.
The icing consists of:
(1) 8oz. pkg Neufchatel cream cheese - softened
(1) cup confectioners sugar
(1) tsp. vanilla extract
Mix together with a mixer until creamy.
Once the cupcakes were cool, I put the icing in a piping bag and piped some icing on each cupcake. I was supposed to use all the icing, but I really didn't need to.
They turned out so yummy and the birthday girl loved them!
