Peach Pie Cupcakes

Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes

Ingredients

Crumbles

  • 6 tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter melted

Cupcakes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Crisco Pure Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup peach preserves

Peach Frosting

  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 stick 1 cup Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening
  • cup peach preserves
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 fresh peaches sliced, for garnish

Instructions

  • To make the crumbles: Preheat oven to 300°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Use your hands to break the mixture into crumbles and spread them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. (They will harden as they cool).
  • Let crumbles cool completely. Make sure to break up any large pieces so all crumbles are about the same size. Store in an air-tight container until ready to use.
  • To make the cake: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two 12-cup muffin/cupcake pans with 20 paper liners.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, ginger, and salt.
  • Add both sugars, eggs, oil, vanilla, and milk. Mix on medium speed with an electric mixer until all ingredients are incorporated.
  • Divide batter evenly between cake pans. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until cupcakes are lightly golden brown and set in the center. (Test by inserting a toothpick into the center of each cake layer. If it comes out clean, they're done!)
  • Let cupcakes cool completely. Once cool, use a sharp knife to cut a little hole in the center of each cupcake. You want the hole to go about halfway down into the cupcake, not all the way through. Spoon peach preserves into each cupcake.
  • To make the frosting: In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter on medium speed until smooth. Add shortening and mix until completely incorporated.
  • Add peach preserves, vanilla extract, heavy cream, and half of powdered sugar. Mix on low speed until ingredients are mostly combined, and then medium-high speed until completely combined, about 1 minute.
  • Scrape the sides of the bowl and repeat with the second half of the powdered sugar.
  • Pipe or spread frosting over the cupcakes. Sprinkle with crumble topping and garnish with a fresh peach slice. (If you’re not serving immediately, you may want to wait and add the peach slices right before you serve them.)
  • Store cupcakes in a sealed container at room temperature.
