The minute I saw the Maple Creme OREO Cookies in the store, I knew I wanted to try them. Who am I kidding? I almost always want to try every new flavor of OREO cookies! Don't believe me... check out these other OREO recipes I've shared:
Anywho, generally speaking Maple syrup is not generally my favorite flavor, it's delicious in these cookies!! And it just feel so Fall-y. 🍁🍁🍁
So here's what you do:
First, in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer (so sorry for the awful pic), add the cake mix, eggs, oil, half n half, and Maple syrup, and blend with the whisk attachment until the cake batter is smooth and creamy.
Then remove the mixing bowl from the stand, and add the crushed cookies. Scrape the sides of the mixing bowl with a spatula, and stir batter and crushed cookies until blended.
Place cupcake liner in a muffin tin, and place a whole Oreo Maple Creme Cookie in the bottom of the liner. Fill the liners ⅔ full with the batter, and bake at 350°F for 20 - 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the cupcakes from the oven, and place on a wire rack to completely cool.
In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, blend the Crisco and softened butter until smooth and creamy. Add the vanilla, and blend. Then the powdered sugar a little at a time, alternating with the cream until the Frosting is smooth, thick, and creamy. And last add the cinnamon, and blend.
Place the mixing bowl in the refrigerator until time to frost the cupcakes. When the cupcakes are cooled, place the frosting in a pastry bag, and with the star tip, pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes starting at the base, and swirling around up to a point in the center (see photo).
