Pumpkin Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes before Thanksgiving, and they smelled SO good that we could hardly wait to eat them! Not too pumpkin-y, and I substituted whiskey for rum, because that's what I had on hand. I can't imagine that rum would make them any better, but try it yourself and see!

Hope you enjoy...
