I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to make a pie!  This Cherry Cupcake Pie is so rich, moist and gooey.


Cherry Cupcake Pie - Lady Behind The CurtainI’m thinking you guessed what the main ingredient is by the name of my pie.  Yep, I used mini white cupcakes to cream this wonderfully fun and unexpected pie.  It’s the BEST of both worlds!  Pie and cupcakes!  Who could ask for more!  :)

You would think the frosting on top would melt but instead it dries out and becomes crunchy meringue cookies.
