It is time yet again, to wax poetic about cupcakes......

There once was a girl from Salt Lake

who truly loved to bake

so she mixed up a batter

that would make her get fatter

and called it the Oreo Cupcake

he he he he ...sometimes I crack my self up. I think there may be some sort of clinical problem with me when it comes to the subject of cupcakes. They just make me so happy. Now this cupcake, it is super special. Not only is it moist, dense, and rich....but it has Oreos in it. And to add just that little bit of excess... cream cheese frosting...........excuse me I just got a little weak in the knees.

So, if there is someone you love, you need to make these right away....or if there is someone you don't love so much....and they are on a diet....make these right away....you get the gist.


OREO CUPCAKES

½ cup butter, softened
1 ½ cups sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
½ cup sour cream
1 cup milk
3 cups APF
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
Oreos

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. With the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together until light. Add the vanilla and eggs one at a time and mix well. Beat in the sour cream. Sift the dry ingredients directly into the bowl and mix well on a low-medium speed slowly adding the milk. In each muffin cup, break an Oreo in half and place inside. Spoon the batter into muffin tins lined with paper. Bake for 18 minutes. Cool on a rack. Frost with Cream cheese Frosting and sprinkle with crushed oreos.

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
½ cup butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened
6 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons cream.
1 Tablespoon vanilla

With a mixer, combine 1 cup of sugar with the butter and cream cheese and beat until very smooth. Next add the rest of the sugar and beat until smooth. Finally, add the vanilla and cream and beat on medium speed for two minutes or so. *If you need to add more cream feel free to do so.

Cupcakes make me happy too! I think it's because they look feminine. Kind of pretty. Or maybe it's all that sugar. Either way I love these too! Irresistible!
