I love fall, the crispness in the air that hints at the coming winter, the color of the leaves falling down, and the crunch they make as you walk through them. I also love the smell of all the delicious apple treats baking in the oven. Here's the recipe for some great apple cupcakes!

Apple Cinnamon Cupcakes
1 c butter, softened
1 1/4 c sugar
4 eggs, room temperature
2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 c applesauce
1 apple, peeled, cored, and finely chopped

Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Whisk together flour and cinnamon, add to butter mixture. Fold in apples and applesauce.

Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake for 25 minutes at 350, or until tests done.

Mead Frosting
1/4 c butter
3 T milk
2 T mead
3 + c icing sugar

Cream butter. Add milk and mead. Stir in icing sugar until desired consistency is reached.
