Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Hubby and I are such Cinnamon Toast Cereal freaks.. That when I went to look (Pinterest) for 
a dessert that tasted like it, I came across these!


SNICKERDOODLE CUPCAKES & SOUR CREAM FROSTING!  

Oh my mouth.. These were amazing and probably one 
of thee worst non-healthy things I've ever made. But they were to die for.

Now, I had every single ingredient to make these, except for the whole extra cookie on top was 
a little too much for me.. So I skipped that part. Here is the deliciousness recipe! Makes about 12 
normal size cupcakes, or 24 mini's!

Ingredients:
For the cupcakes:
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 0.5 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup milk, room temperature

For the frosting:
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • (milk if needed)

Directions:
For the cupcakes:
1) Preheat oven to 350°F & line cupcake trays with paper liners.
2) Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Set aside. 
3) In your stand mixer or hand mixer which I used, cream butter and sugar on medium high speed for about 2 minutes, then add the eggs one at a time. Keep beating for another minute.
4) With your mixer running on low speed, add the flour mixture in three additions and the milk in two additions.
5) Fill the batter in the baking cups, about 3/4 full and bake for about 15 minutes, until a tooth pick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let the cupcakes cool down.

For the frosting:
1) Cream the butter with the mixer on high speed until fluffy. 
2) Add 1 cup of powdered sugar and keep beating for another minute. 
3) Add the sour cream and the rest of the sugar and continue on medium high speed for 2 minutes.
Side note: In case your frosting is too thick, add some milk, if it is too liquid, add some sugar.
