As you probably know by now, I love love love butternut squash:-) Its tasty, versatile, readily available all year around and cheap too. My Mum makes the best butternut squash cookies ever and I will put up the recipe and photos for them some time soon. Meanwhile these tasty cupcakes adapted from VanillaGarlic recipe will do fine:-)
