You know, I was not sure what to expect with these little cupcakes when I read the recipe, but I’m always looking for interesting treats to share with my department at work so thought I’d give it a shot. These are marvelous. When making them, be sure to really grease each cupcake cup before inserting the pie crust and other ingredients. Some of the preserves bubbled over on a couple of mine and it was very difficult to remove the cakes intact. No worries though, the damaged ones tasted just as good! I used white cake mix (added extra vanilla) but really any cake mix, boxed or homemade, will work just fine. Because I was under some time constraints I topped my cakes with canned butter cream frosting but these really need something a little more special. Next time I will take the extra effort and top them off with a really good, fluffy frosting. These were a hit with my co-workers (one asked for the recipe and made them for his son’s birthday party) and a hit at home. The creative possibilities with this recipe are endless so I’ll be sure to make them again and again.
