Cookies n\' Cream Cupcakes

Well, TGIF! It has been a busy week for me so I’m excited to slow down and relax. I love a good weekend filled with family, fun and awesome food!

Well folks, this recipe will not disappoint. Cookies ‘n Cream Cupcakes are my new favorite treat! I’ve been developing a good vanilla cupcake recipe for some time now and finally I’ve got it down…with lots of Oreo cookies added in no less!

These look really fancy but are a cinch to make. This frosting is pretty much amazing too. I definitely ate it with a spoon! All you need are some basic ingredients like butter, sugar, eggs, self rising flour and Oreos- things I always have on hand. Then you make your batter and bake! Cool your cupcakes and then top them with the cookies ‘n cream frosting. Voilà! Perfect cupcakes you will swoon over!

Hope you all can indulge this weekend! Happy friday! 🙂

 

Cookies 'n Cream Cupcakes

Could it be the Oreo cookies inside and out that make these cookies n cream cupcakes so delicious! They look really fancy and are a cinch to make.

servings 24
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 35 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 1/2 cup crushed oreo cookies

For the frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 pound powdered sugar about 3 3/4 cups
  • 1/2 cup ground Oreo cookies
  • Mini Oreo cookies for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line 24 muffin tins with paper liners and set aside.
  • In large stand mixer whip butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla and eggs 1 at a time until combined. Scrape sides and mix again.
  • Slowly stir in flours and milk, alternating back and forth until all ingredients are added to the bowl. Scrape sides and mix again briefly. Fold in chopped Oreo pieces by hand.
  • Scoop batter into prepared muffin tins so they are 2/3 full. Bake 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. (it's really important to not over bake these so they stay moist. Watch them carefully!) once baked, remove them from the oven and set aside to cool.
  • For the frosting, whip butter and vanilla together in a large bowl. Stir in powdered sugar and then the milk. Scrape sides and whip 1-2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Fold in ground Oreos. Frost cooled cupcakes and top with mini Oreo.
  • *If you plan to pipe the frosting onto your cupcakes like I did, I would recommend doubling the frosting recipe and making sure the Oreo cookies were ground really well so you don't clog your piping bag.

    […] Oreo cookies are just what you need to turn your next baking spree into a cookies and cream bash. Simply make traditional vanilla cupcakes and add a cup and half of crushed Oreo cookies to turn them into something resembling the ice cream flavor. Once you’ve baked them, add more ground Oreo cookies to the frosting mix (along with standard ingredients like butter, vanilla, powdered sugar and milk.) After frosting each treat, add a mini Oreo cookie to the top in order to make them even more delectable. Source Lauren’s Latest […]

    If I were to bake this as 2 9 inch cake rounds would you change the baking time? What would you suggest?
