I wanted to somehow make a classic cherry pie into a cupcake form, I think I've succeeded.  This is a soft vanilla cake with cherry filling, top with buttercream and graham cracker 'crust'.

Step 1: Bake the cakes!

First, bake vanilla cakes.  This recipe will make 24 cupcakes.

Vanilla Cake
2 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 stick unsalted butter, softened
2 cup sugar
4 large eggs, room temp
1 cup milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 and line 24 cupcake tins. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually mix in each egg one at a time. In another bowl, add milk and vanilla. Alternate mixing the dry ingredients and milk mixture into the butter batter in 3 parts. Once all mixed, divide into cupcake tins, filling about 3/4 up. Bake for 20-25 minutes until done.

looks yummy
Yum! I never though about putting pie filling in cupcakes - great idea.
These sound amazing! I'll let you know how they turn out when I make them! :)
