Sweet Potato Pie Cupcakes
Monday, February 23, 2009 | Time: 1:09 PM

Today, I woke up craving Sweet Potatoes. Um, yeah I guess thats weird. But when I got up I popped a big juicy sweet potato in the oven and went about my business, letting my mind wander in case I came up with any brilliant ideas.
About four in the afternoon, the idea came to me - Sweet Potato Pie Cupcakes! I've got half a jar of marshmallow fluff in the pantry. Perfect!! So I did a little research on sweet potato style cupcakes and decided to use this one. It was originally Burbon Sweet Potato cupcakes, from Bakerella.
I omitted the Burbon (though I'd love to try that some time) since I'm on a roll here with the whole Pie thing... They turned out beautifully. I am soooo proud. And they didnt take long to make, at all. Granted, the Marshmallow Cream topping did tend to crack, instead of spreading gooey-like all over the cakes. I have no complaints though, these were really good!

Sweet Potato Pie Cupcakes
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter, room temperature
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (OR mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, etc)
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
1 cup cooked sweet potatoes
1/2 jar Marshmallow Cream

* Line cupcake trays with 24 baking cups.
* Whisk together flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a large bowl.

* Fill baking cups. Top each with Marshmallow Cream.
* Bake for 12-15 minutes or until done.
