Yeah, those times suck.
Lucky for me though that didn’t happen this time. This time I got my midterm test back and found out I got a 98!
Awyeah! It’s celebrating time!
The only question I got wrong was a simple math question that was 3.3 instead if 3.2. Yeah, I completely failed that question.
Boozy Mini Pecan Pie Cupcakes
Makes 12 cupcakes
Mini Pecan Pies
1 pie crust
1/2 recipe pecan pie
1 1/4 cups + 2 tbls all purpose flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temperatures
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 sticks butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp whiskey
1/4 cup pecan pie filling, without pecans
3-4 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350F.
Line you cupcake pan with 12 cupcake liners, set aside.
In the bowl of your stand mixer, mix butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly in between each one. Combine milk and vanilla in a bowl, and alternating with the flour combine into the butter mixture until all mixed well.
Fill each cupcake liner about halfway with batter. Sprinkle brown sugar over the batter.
Place in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
For the frosting beat butter in a stand mixer until fluffy. Add in vanilla, whiskey and pecan pie filling and mix to combine. Slowly add in the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until desired consistency. You may need more or less. If frosting is to thick add in some milk, if it’s too thin keep adding more powdered sugar.
