Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 5 cups powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Whisk the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and baking soda in a medium bowl. Beat the brown sugar and oil in a large bowl at medium speed for 1 minute. Beat in ½ cup cottage cheese. At low speed, beat in the eggs, one at a time, until combined. Beat in the pumpkin. Slowly beat in the flour mixture; stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Divide the batter between the muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. Process the cream cheese and ½ cup cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth; place in a large bowl. At low speed, beat in the maple flavoring. Slowly beat in 4 cups powdered sugar, adding the remaining powdered sugar, as necessary, for desired consistency.
  6. Frost the cupcakes and decorate as desired; let stand until set. Cover and store cupcakes in refrigerator; serve at room temperature.
