cupcakes finally

Ok now I'm keeping my promise. There are cupcakes here today. And they are goooooood. If you don't have a sweet tooth, you won't like this post, and I am sorry for you. These are cookies and cream cupcakes. They are basically pure sugar and they are awesome. The recipe I found made 30 cookies. And that seemed excessive, even for me. So I quartered it and got 7 cupcakes. Honestly, I don't even know if I can eat those seven. But it's ok, Dan will eat them or something.The recipe calls for oreos, but I think any chocolaty cookie will do. I had to trim them a bit because my home made oreos weren't particularly uniform. But anyway, the point is, grab some cookies. Cause you're making these.
This is the whole recipe, but I definitely don't recommend using this whole thing unless you're making them for a party. 30 of these is a lotttttt.
(Oh also! VOTE in the sidebar!)

42 cookies, 30 left whole, 12 roughly chopped
2 lbs cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
pinch of salt

with a mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Slowly add the sugar and beat until combined, then add vanilla. Then when no one is looking grab a little taste of it. YUM. good right?
Drizzle in eggs while mixing. Beat in sour cream and salt then stir in the chopped cookies by hand.

Preheat the oven to 275F and fill muffin tin with cupcake liners. Put one cookie in the bottom of each liner. I cut the oreos into little squares so they fit better.

Spoon batter evenly over the cookies almost to the top of the cups. They won't really rise so don't worry about them spilling over.
The recipe says to bake for 22 minutes, but I left mine in for 25, maybe almost thirty. Just keep an eye on them and take them out of the oven when they've set. That means when they're still slightly liquidy, but not jiggly. Yes, that is the official definition.
Let them cool on the counter completly, then put them in the fridge for at least 4 hours. I left them in the fridge overnight and it was fine.
After you have impatiently waited for the cupcakes to be done, now you can eat one. mmmm delicious. Don't eat more than 1 at a time. Seriously though, you could go into a diabetic coma.
