As a child one of the highlights of the fall season was visiting a local orchard near our home with my mom to buy baking apples. My mom is a baker. Let me clarify, my mom is an AMAZING baker.  Apple season is pretty popular here in New Jersey. Long before I became the farmer’s wife, I would go with my mom to the self-serve area of Jersey Jerry’s Apple Orchards to buy bags of apples so my mom could bake. I can still vividly remember everything about that little self-serve store right down to the box where we would drop our money to pay. But what sticks out most in my mind is the delicious recipes that my mom creates like these Apple Spice Cupcakes.

I love to bake, but I consider myself a shortcut baker. Life as a busy mom means that I need to find quick solutions to getting meals and desserts done in a pinch. Thankfully, the new PillsburyTM Filled Pastry Bag is the perfect solution for decorating the perfect cupcake. These pastry bags come in three flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate and Cream Cheese.

I used the Vanilla flavor to pipe rosettes onto my Apple Spice Cupcakes. The PillsburyTM Filled Pastry Bag is so versatile too.

I get so excited each year when apples are in season on our farm. It’s the perfect opportunity to walk out my front door and pick a few apples off of our trees. These Apple Spice Cupcakes are loaded with the fresh apples I just picked. They also have plenty of cinnamon spice to add to the delicious fall flavors of this cupcake.

After I iced them with the vanilla PillsburyTM Filled Pastry Bag, I garnished the top with some cinnamon sugar and a slice of dried apple.
