Oreo Cookie Cupcakes

I did tell you guys that I got Martha Stewart's cupcakes book, right? Now I'm making cupcakes and more cupcakes. In our family when it comes to dessert we used the democratic voting system. Who says the politics are not good? Three kids many choices for dessert so we vote. When they looked thru the book the two older ones Brandon and Cass agreed at once for the oreo cupcakes, Alex wanted the marshmallow ones. Being outvoted he dropped the democratic system and started crying that he lost. I know, I know strange thing for a little guy, but not when you have two older brothers. Everything in our house is a competition. From eating to dressing up to sports I mean EVERYTHING.
Lucky for him his older brothers love him a lot, and let him win ( they do most of the time). So he got his cupcakes made first, and then he helped with his brothers choice to.
Here are the official winers of the democratic election (dessert edition).


Ingredients

21 oreo cookies, 15 left whole and 6 coarsely chopped
1/2 cup of sugar
2 large eggs room temperature lightly beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
1 pound cream cheese ( I used 2 packages of light philadelphia cheese)
1 tsp of pure vanilla extract.
pinch salt


Preheat the oven to 275˚F. Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners.
Place one whole cookie in each paper lining.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese on medium high speed until smooth. Gradually add in the sugar, mix until very well combine. Beat in the vanilla. Drizzle in the eggs, a bit at the time, beating to combine and scrapping down the sides of the bowl as need it. Beat in sour cream and salt.


Stir in the chopped cookies by hand.


Divide the batter between the cookie filled cups, filling each almost to the top. I had some left over, and I made to more in my ramekins. bake for about 22 minutes or until filling is set.


Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Refrigerate in tins for at least 4 hours.


Enjoy!

  28. Hello Ariella,
    I hope you are going to like the cupcakes.
    And you are right, it does make 21 oreos....:)

  29. I tried out your recipe. But mine didn't turn out so pretty :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hello Ancutza,
    I'm sorry your cupcakes didn't turn out so pretty, but I hope they tasted just as good:-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi your cupcakes look amazing =]
    I was just wondering if its 275 degrees for a fanforced oven?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi Berny,
    thank you. the temperature is for a normal oven, if you use a fan-forced one ( convection oven) lower the temperature with 25 degrees. i hope that helps :-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. When you say 'Refrigerate in tins for at least 4 hours' does that mean before eating them? :S

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hello Lisa,
    Yes! You have to refrigerate the cupcakes for 4 hours befor serving them. The cream has to harden! :-)

  42. hi! I loved your recipe! I have a question: How can I replace the sour cream? I live in Argentina and here we cannot find it at any store.

    Thank you! And congratulations this muffins look delicious

    (sorry for my bad english!)

  43. Hi Obnubilada,
    I'm glad you like the recipe. To answer your question, you can use yogurt instead of sour cream plain would be best but vanilla works also. I hope this helps❤

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi ! I'm making this for a picnic and I'm wondering if it is a must to add sour cream ? And yogurt you mean plain yogurt right ?

    Oh ! The muffins look delicious !!! ^^

  46. Hi Alanna

    You have to add Sour cream or yogurt not both. You can substitute plain or vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream.
    As for taking the cupcakes to a picnic, you have to be careful, those cupcakes need to be kept cool, you can't keep them to long in the sun or heat. I hope this helps.♥♥♥
