Streusel-Topped Apple Cider Cupcakes

We’re in the final countdown to Thanksgiving! This may be exciting for some, but possibly panicking most… but everything’s all going to work out. So just take a chill pill.

Thanksgiving may be one of our most traditional family gatherings of the year, but more and more people are now putting their own personal twist on the untouchable traditions. For one, there’s more and more “Friendsgiving” happening, and we think our Streusel-topped Apple Cider Cupcakes might be a perfect dessert recipe to bring to one of your Friendsgiving dinner!
