Cash's choice today, he really wanted to make apple sugar cookies but we couldn't find a recipe so we decided on Apple Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Frosting (I added the frosting part, I've always wanted to make that kind).
Finding 1/3 cup of butter on the stick
Cracking the eggs. Viv is the master egg cracker so she had to help her brother (mostly I think he doesn't like to get egg goo on his fingers).
We have gone through the cinnamon this week. Can't have apples without cinnamon I guess.
MMMMM Brown Sugar, butter and cream(we actually used evaporated milk)...its got to be good!
WOOOOWWWW! Best recipe we have done so far. We are renaming them Cashel's Carmel Apple Cupcakes!
Once again Cash made an excellent recipe choice!

BROWN SUGAR FROSTING
Printed from COOKS.COM
1 1/2 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 c. milk (or half & half -liquid non dairy creamer is good too)
3 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
Place first 3 ingredients in heavy saucepan. Mix until sugar is moistened. Bring to full boil, stirring occasionally. Boil exactly 3 minutes (soft ball stage). Remove from heat and add vanilla. Place pan in cool water in sink and beat contents until cool. This frosting thickens quickly once cool. If it gets too thick, add a small amount of milk and beat until spreadable. Frosts 9 inch cake.
