  1. Pecan Pie Cupcakes:
  2. 1 Fields Pecan Pie
  3. 2 cups Shawnee Mills All-Purpose Flour
  4. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  5. Pinch of salt
  6. 3/4 cup Hiland Unsalted Butter, softened
  7. 1 1/2 cups sugar
  8. 3 Hansens eggs
  9. 1 1/2 tablespoon Griffins Vanilla
  10. 1/2 cup Hiland Milk
  11. 3/4 Hiland Sour Cream
  12. Maple Buttercream Frosting:
  13. 1 cup Hiland Unsalted Butter, softened
  14. 2 cups powdered sugar
  15. 1/2 cup Griffins Original Syrup
  16. 1 teaspoon Griffins vanilla
  17. 1 tablespoon Prairie Wolf Dark Coffee Liqueur
  18. 3 or more tablespoons Hiland Heavy Whipping Cream
  1. Pecan Pie Cupcakes:
    Defrost pie, according to package directions. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. With a mixer combine butter and sugar. Mix on low speed until combined, and then beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each egg. Add vanilla, milk and sour cream, mixing until combined. Slowly add flour mixture, turning the mixer on low speed between each addition of flour. Once the flour is incorporated, turn up the mixer to medium speed and beat for 2 minutes until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Fill 24 muffin cups with muffin liners or spray muffin cups with nonstick spray. If using muffin liners, still spray with nonstick spray, so the cupcakes will come out easily. Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full with batter.
  5. Cut half the pecan pie and place on a cutting board. Chop pie into small pieces. The remaining half pie is yours to eat!
  6. Scoop one tablespoon of chopped pecan pie into the center of each muffin cup, pushing it down into the batter.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until done.
  8. Maple Buttercream Frosting:
    With a mixer, combine butter and powdered sugar, starting mixer on low and then increasing speed as the sugar is blended.
  9. Add syrup, vanilla and liqueur, mixing on low speed until combined. Add cream until you reach desired consistency.
