Most of the time when you bake with pumpkin you think of cream cheese as a frosting,I know I usually do.  Brown Butter Frosting has this delicious nutty rich flavor that pairs well with pumpkin and is absolutely delicious.  It makes me think of the warm spices we love so much this time of year like cinnamon and nutmeg.

The frosting is easy to make, browning the butter in a saucepan is about the hardest ( if there had to be a hard part) of making it.  It really just takes a little patience and a watchful eye while your melting the butter and waiting for it to turn a glorious nut brown color in the pan.

The Pumpkin Cupcakes are tender and moist.  The Brown Butter Frosting is smooth,creamy and delicious, a match made in cupcake heaven. Pumpkin Cupcakes with Brown Butter Frosting … Enjoy!
