Oreo Buttercream


Oreo Buttercream by Shannon Vavich

1 lb unsalted butter, room temperaturae

2 lbs powdered sugar

Pinch salt

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

About 1/2 pack Oreo cookies, pulverized in food processor, to make 2 cups of crumbs


Using a heavy duty stand mixer, cream the butter until smooth. Add the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until fully mixed. Add pinch of salt and 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream. Beat for 1-2 minutes for a smooth and fluffy icing.

Using a food processor, pulverize about 1/2 a pack of Oreo cookies. Measure out 2 cups of the crumbs, and add it to the buttercream. Mix just enough to incorporate, then use a spoon to mix further. Using a mixer to mix the crumbs into the buttercream fully will result in a chocolate icing, as the crumbs will be crushed to powder.

Use an icing bag with the tip cut off to pipe the buttercream onto cupcakes.

Top each cupcake with a whole cookie! And that’s all it takes! Delicious. Seriously.

Thanks so much,

Shannon Vavich
