Ingredients

Frosting

1/2 cup reduced-fat cream cheese 


1/4 cup light butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown), room temperature 


1/4 tsp. vanilla extract 


1/3 cup powdered sugar

Cupcakes

1 3/4 cups moist-style spice cake mix 


1 cup canned pure pumpkin 


1/3 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original) 


1/2 tsp. baking powder 


1/8 tsp. salt 


1/8 tsp. cinnamon 


1/8 tsp. pumpkin pie spice 


Dash nutmeg 



Topping

1/8 tsp. pumpkin pie spice 



Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil baking cups, or spray it with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, combine all frosting ingredients except powdered sugar. With an electric mixer set to medium speed, beat until smooth, 1 - 2 minutes. Continue to beat while gradually adding powdered sugar. Beat until smooth, another 1 - 2 minutes. Cover and refrigerate.

In another large bowl, combine all cupcake ingredients, and mix until smooth and uniform. Evenly distribute batter among the cups of the muffin pan. 



Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 16 - 18 minutes. 



Let cool completely, about 10 minutes in the pan and 25 minutes out of the pan. 



Evenly frost cupcakes, and top with pumpkin pie spice.
