date filled cookies (it's okay, folks, don't freak out that this was old filling, I am just now posting the recipe, but I made the cupcakes about a week after the date cookies) and knew that I had to use both.
Pumpkin Cake Mix Cupcakes:
1 cake mix, preferably butter pecan, spice or yellow
14 ounce can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
Optional date filling from this recipe
Optional cream cheese frosting
Combine all three ingredients in a bowl. Stir or mixer them all together until smooth. Scoop into cupcake liners. Bake 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until they test done. If using filling, spoon filling on top of uncooked cupcakes and slightly press down. Frost if desired.
