Strawberry Cream Pie Cupcakes: Cupcake Tuesday

By March 1, 2011Cupcakes

Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so glad to have you! I have updated the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 100 designs and recipes! Check it out!!

Are you tired of the Pie Cupcakes yet? I sure hope not! I have a few more for you.

Strawberry Cream Pie Cupcakes were inspired from memories of picking strawberries in my Dad’s berry patch and making a fresh Strawberry Pie with them. My Dad was an amazing gardener!! His tomatoes were the talk of the town! In the early years, I remember his garden being HUGE, he usually put out 48 tomato plants, green peppers, corn, carrots and lots more. But, his pride and joy was his strawberry patch. He would fight to keep the birds away and pick hand fulls at a time, carrying them up from the patch in the tail of his shirt.

There are several different varieties of Strawberry Pie. Some cooks make it with just the pie crust, strawberries and glaze. Others make it with chopped strawberries and whipped topping. The Strawberry Pie we are re-creating in a cupcake today, has the crust {cupcake}, the filling, fresh strawberries and glaze.

Walmart and most of the grocery stores have had strawberries the last couple of weeks, and while they are nothing like fresh picked, they are definitely a bite of Spring!

I have created steps for you, although they are pretty easy to make.

Strawberry Cream Pie Cupcakes

Deliciously decadent Strawberry Cream Pie Cupcakes from HoosierHomemade.com

Ingredients

  • %https://hoosierhomemade.com/wp-content/uploads/Strawberry-Cupcakes.supplies.jpg

Cream Filling

  • 4 oz {1/2 package} cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1-2 cups powdered sugar {depending on consistency}
  • splash of vanilla

Instructions

  1. Bake cupcakes; I added a little less than 1 tablespoon {cookie dough scoop} of cake batter to the liners; let cool.
  2. Cut about 1/2 inch off the tip of strawberries, place 1 whole tip in the center, then cut the remaining tips in half and place around the center; you could also just cut pieces and place them in the filling.
  3. Add glaze to the top of the strawberries, coating them completely.

Cream Filling

  1. Cream all ingredients until smooth and you reach desired consistency.

Strawberry Glaze Recipe:

If you want to cheat {forgive me, I hosted 2 parties last weekend} like I did, just buy a container in the produce section at Walmart, it’s only $1.58…but if you prefer to make your own, here is the recipe from Mommy’s Kitchen.

  • 1 small box (4 oz) strawberry jello
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon strawberry extract
  • 1 1/2 cups water

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring mixture to boil, reduce heat to medium and cook until the mixture thickens, stirring often. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

While these Strawberry Cream Pie Cupcakes are delicious, they are also a cupcake you will need to eat with a fork. They set up a little better in the fridge over night and I was able to take this picture the following morning, but you will still need to serve them with a fork.
