PUMPKIN PIE FROSTING RECIPE
- 2 sticks butter, room temperature
- 6-8 cups powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- in a stand mixer with paddle attachment, add butter and beat on high for 4 minutes, scraping
- the bowl once light and fluffy
- add 6 cups powdered sugar, milk, puree, and spices to mixer and mix on low speed for 30
- seconds, then increase speed to high until frosting is smooth
- add rest of powdered sugar if needed to get desired consistency
- due to the puree making the frosting a little loose, I put my mixing bowl in the fridge to firm up prior to frosting the cupcakes.
- once I frosted cupcakes, I sprinkled some pumpkin pie spice on top :) ENJOY!
