I have heard from so many people that Pecan pie are their favorite pie for the holiday but no one wants to make it. So why not make these Pecan Pie Cupcakes instead. These are simple cupcakes that have pecan pie filling inside with a delicious cinnamon buttercream frosting.
How to Store Pecan Pie
Once you have made these pecan pie cupcakes you want to make sure you are storing them correctly. Whether you are storing pecan pie or these pecan pie cupcakes, you want to keep them protected from the air. I like having a cupcake holder like this one. It makes it easy to move the cupcakes from one place to another but it also protects them from getting stale and dried out.
How Long Do Cupcakes with Pecan Pie last
When you make these cupcakes, they will last about 5 days when they are stored properly. While the cupcakes will last long in the refrigerator, it will also cause them to dry out faster and taste stale.
