One of my favorite books, is Martha Stewart’s Cupcake Book, today I’m sharing my version of her Gingerbread Cupcakes.
I baked the Gingerbread Cookies and decided to share them in the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies that I have been posting everyday, so that this post wasn’t super long.
Ingredients for Cupcakes:
- 1 1/2 c. Flour
- 2 T. Ground Ginger
- 2 t. Cinnamon
- 1/4 t. Nutmeg
- 1/4 t. Ground Cloves
- 1 1/2 c. Butter, unsalted, room temperature
- 1 1/2 c. Sugar
- 3 T. Molasses
- 4 Eggs, room temperature
- 1 t. Vanilla
Sift together dry ingredients. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add molasses until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time. beating until each is incorporated. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, beat just until combined. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
I frosted them with Fluffy Vanilla Frosting and decorated them with a small Gingerbread Cookie.
