Pumpkin Chip Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

So my older sister is a big fan of giving me recipes she thinks she will like and having me try them out. Well this is one of those recipes! She got it from their town’s pumpkin festival. It turned out to be pretty good. I think my pumpkin pie cupcakes are a little better but this is a great fall cupcake as well!
