Makes 12 cupcakes
Start to Finish: 45 minutes

Ingredients

12 Oreos

½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup sugar

3 egg whites

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1¾ cups all-purpose flour

1¼ teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

½ cup milk, at room temperature

Whipped cream, for serving

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 12 cups of a muffin pan with cupcake liners. Place an Oreo in the base of each liner.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the egg whites gradually and mix to combine. Beat in the vanilla extract.

3. Add the flour, baking powder and salt, and mix to combine. Add the milk gradually, and mix to combine.

4. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, scooping the batter on top of the Oreos.

5. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 22 to 25 minutes. Invert onto a cooling rack. While the cupcakes are still warm, peel away the liners. Cool completely.

6. Serve the cupcakes garnished with dollops of whipped cream.
