Snickerdoodle Cupcakes With Speculoos Frosting

I bought Speculoos Cookie Butter from Trader Joes the other day, and figured -- there MUST be another way to enjoy this than straight from the jar with a spoon. Experimented with cupcakes and frosting, and I must say - these are DELISH! Be aware - I'm at a high altitude, so you may need to adjust accordingly.
