I love pie.

 

What’s not to love? Buttery, flaky crust with a veritable smorgasbord of fillings: luscious fruits, crunchy nuts, creamy custards, and spices galore!! The options are endless!! You can serve it a la mode, hot or cold, whipped cream or no whipped cream (Let’s be honest though, who doesn’t want whipped cream?). Some of my all time favorites are cherry pie and coconut cream.

 

Or maybe pecan pie.

 

Or French silk pie.

 

OK, so maybe I have more than a few favorites.

 

Bottom line: pie is delicious.

 

What I don’t love is MAKING pie. There are just so many things that can go wrong: soggy crust, burnt crust, undercooked middle, etc. This is a problem because I love pie, but I’m also picky about it. It really has to be perfect or I’m out.

 

Now, why exactly am I lamenting my pie woes to you today? Because I have a solution, and a good one if I do say so myself. Why not combine what I love eating with what I love making?!!

 

Pie + Cupcake= True Love

 

Who needs fickle, fallible crust when a light and fluffy cupcake can be cored out to make the perfect venue for delicious pie filling! For instance, did you know that Pumpkin pie that has been baked and cooled pipes perfectly onto a cupcake in place of frosting?
