I think Thanksgiving is my new favorite holiday, because it is the beginning of all the fun, and I love having all the family around. These Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes get me in the holiday mood, and the kids love them. They are also a great pie replacement for those picky eaters.
I know it may seem crazy to some of you, but I am not a pie fan. I just don’t love pie crust. My husband would be ashamed that I am admitting this, but it is true. I would rather have a brownie or cake any day.
