Sugar Cookie Cupcakes w/Nutella Buttercream

Kathryn's birthday was last week and she doesn't like cake.  She does like cookies though.  I used the sugar cookie recipe I had used in the past which is here and I used that as my cupcake.  You do need to make these in the freestanding silicone cups so they can be removed easily. The nutella buttercream frosting is from  The cookie cupcakes and frosting combination were a hit!  

3 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
1-1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 large egg
2 tbsp corn syrup

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a medium bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.

In large bowl beat together butter, sugar and cream cheese until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and almond extracts.  Add egg and corn syrup.  Scrape the bottom and sides of bowl and add flour and mix on low until mixture is moistened.

Spray the silicone cups with PAM.  Fill cups 3/4 of the way with cookie dough.  Make sure to tap the cups down a few times to fill all the air holes.  Put all cups on a baking sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes.  Cool before frosting.  

2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup Nutella spread
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp heavy whipping cream

In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and powdered sugar on low until well blended.  Add nutella and beat for two minutes.  Add vanilla extract and whip for another minute.  Add whipping cream and beat for another minute until frosting is fluffy.  Pipe onto cookie cupcakes.

Enjoy!!  Susan
