    For the past few weeks, I have been tweaking and perfecting a delectable new kosher cupcake recipe inspired by the flavors of cookie butter and espresso, to share with all of you.  So here are my indulgent Cookie Butter Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercream. These cupcakes can be made Dairy or Parve.  They are perfect for a fun Shabbat dessert or serving a crowd at a Simcha.  Cook and comment. I’d love to see your pictures, answer your questions and hear your experiences.  If you like my content, please subscribe, follow us on FacebookInstagram and Pinterest.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Mise en Place

    Have all your ingredients measure before you begin mixing! Preheat the oven to 325. Line a cupcake pan with cupcake papers.

    2
    Done

    Crumble the Lotus Cookies into a small bowl. You can do this quickly in a food processor for nice, even crumbs. Personally, I like the texture of the uneven cookie layer, so I crumble the cookies by hand. Set Aside.

    3
    Done

    Place the Butter and Sugar into the bowl and begin mixing at low speed until the sugar is mixed in, then turn up to medium to cream the butter and sugar together until a fluffy pale yellow.

    4
    Done

    Turn your mixer to low, then add the Eggs one at a time, allowing each to be fully combined before adding the next.

    5
    Done

    Mix in the Baking Powder and Kosher Salt.

    6
    Done

    Add half the Flour, continue mixer on low until just combined.

    7
    Done

    Add the Water and mix. Then, add the remaining flour and mix until just combined. Scrape the sides of the bowl very well.

    8
    Done

    Add ½ the jar of Lotus Cookie Butter, mix until combined.

    9
    Done

    Add the rest of the cookie butter and mix until mostly combined. STOP the mixer and finish folding by hand. It’s important not to overbeat or your cupcakes will be dense.

    10
    Done

    Sprinkle 1 tsp of crumbs into each cupcake wrapper, then place a flat ice cream scoop full of batter on top of the crumbs. If you do not have an old school ice cream scoop, the measurement is approx ¼ cup of batter per cupcake.

    11
    Done

    Bake at 325 for 28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the middle cupcakes, comes out clean.

    12
    Done

    Allow the cupcakes to cool on a rack while you prepare the icing. The cupcakes must be COMPLETELY cool before frosting them.

    13
    Done

    Making the Frosting

    Dissolve the Instant Espresso in the Boiling Water. The mixture will seem a bit syrupy. It’s densely coffee flavored.

    14
    Done

    Allow the coffee mixture to cool while you whip the Margarine/Butter. Start the mixer slow and turn up to high until light and fluffy.

    15
    Done

    Add the coffee liquid and Kosher Salt to the Margarine/Butter and beat thoroughly.

    16
    Done

    Add Powdered Sugar, 1 Cup at a time, beating until combined before adding the next.

    17
    Done

    Whip until fluffy, add in Cold Water and fold it in by hand. If you are piping your frosting, then you are done. If you will be spreading, then fold in an additional TBS of Cold Water.

    18
    Done

    Frost your cooled cupcakes. If you like, you can sprinkle any remaining cookie crumbs over the top of them or a drizzle of caramel. In these pictures, I did both.
