Strawberry-Cheescake-Cupcake

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened

BATTER:
4 egg whites
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups coarsely chopped fresh strawberries

FROSTING:
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3-3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fresh strawberries and graham cracker crumbs

Directions
Line 24 muffin tins with paper liners; set aside.
Place the cracker crumbs, sugar and butter in a food processor; cover and process until fine crumbs form. Press tablespoonfuls onto bottoms of liners. Bake at 350° for 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned. Set aside to cool.
Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition.
Beat egg whites with clean beaters until stiff peaks form. Fold a third of the egg whites into batter. Fold in remaining egg whites and strawberries.
Fill muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Add confectioners’ sugar and vanilla; beat until smooth. Frost tops. Garnish with strawberries and cracker crumbs. Store in the refrigerator.
