Ryn's Recipes: Pineapple Cream Cupcakes

 I just love pineapple in cookies and cupcakes and telling the story of when my little sister was in second grade I took her to a pie eating contest at her school she was so excited and a great eater so we thought she was sure to win, apple pie was her favorite dessert.  I watched as she took her first bite then came a look of horror she made it half way through the pie and lost the contest. When she was done I asked what was wrong she said it was Pineapple not Apple Pie. That poor girl I don't think has eaten a bite of pineapple since 1990. Maybe she needs to taste these cupcakes.
