4 extra large eggs
2 cups canned pumpkin puree (not pie filling)

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Line cupcake tins with liners. Fill liners 2/3 full of batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Set aside and cool completely

Maple Frosting

Mix cream cheese & butter until smooth. Stir in the maple, and vanilla. With mixer on low slowly add the confectioners sugar and mix until smooth.
