I can almost smell it in the air! Fall is quickly approaching! As much as I love the lazy days of summer and the fresh grilling, parties and outings it brings I absolutely love fall! I love the comfort of sweaters, the warmth of hot cocoa and the delicious flavors fall brings! One of my favorite desserts involves apples and cinnamon and these apple cinnamon cupcakes are delicious! They have the typical feel of a cinnamon roll but baked in a cupcake pan! Feel free to use your own cinnamon roll recipe if you have a family favorite but this one is pretty darn good! 🙂 It’s the perfect mix of cinnamon roll meets apple pie all rolled up in a cute package! Pair it with a cup of coffee or a glass of cold milk and your taste buds will thank you!
