This week’s Cookies and Cream cupcakes recipe is most approved by my kids. According to them this one is better than the best they have tasted. Hmmm. It might have a lot to do with the Oreos that are mixed in the cupcakes but I am not complaining.
Usually, I get a lot of questions about how I manage to do everything in such a short time. Honestly, it’s all in the little planning. For this recipe, I made the cupcakes the day before and then made the frosting in the morning. Making it all at the same time would be rather tiring plus I am a worker bee working outside of our home full time which means I have a very short time on my hands on week nights that I can use to test out the recipes.
The Cookies and cream cupcake recipe is below.
Start by removing the butter and Egg from the refrigerator an hour before starting the recipe. this way you will have them at room temperature when you start your work.
Mix all the dry ingredients except Sugar and keep aside in a separate bowl.
Remove the cream from middle of Oreos and crush them using Mortar and pestle or use a food processor.
Keep the rest of the ingredients at hand on the counter so you are not scrambling for them mid-recipe.
Keep your measuring spoons ready.
