Ready for a Treat?!?

Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes



Ingredients:cupcakes

10 strawberries

1 cup sugar

1 2/3 cup flour

1/2 cup milk

1/2 unsalted butter

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 plain greek yogurt

1/2 teaspoon salt

Frosting

1 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened

2 cups powdered sugar

5 oz. of cream cheese

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons strawberry jam

Instructions:

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Puree the strawberries in a food processor or blender.

3. Melt butter in the microwave for about 40 seconds, then put in a large bowl. Stir in sugar, egg, yogurt, milk, and vanilla extract.

4. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt). Slowly add dry ingredients to wet and stir until smooth and free or lumps.

5. Line cupcake tin with liners and pour out 12 cupcakes, only filling up about half of the way. Bake on 350 for 18-22 minutes. You can check if they are done by inserting a toothpick in the middle. If the toothpick comes out clean, they are done.



6. Take them out of the oven and let them cool completely.

7. Beat butter for the frosting with a mixer until smooth. Add powdered sugar and mix until a good light texture is reached. Add vanilla extract, cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of strawberry jam. Mix well.

8. Take a zip lock bag and fill with the frosting, keeping it angled. Twist at the top, directing frosting all to one bottom corner of the bag. Cut the tip, about half an inch. Use this to have more control when frosting the cupcakes. Add any additional toppings you wish, for example, I sprinkled on some red sugar crystals for decoration.
