Nobody would be able to guess that these cookies are sugar free. They are perfect for parents looking to get their kids to reduce the amount of sugar they consume.

4. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined.  Add almond milk and mix until combined. Remove mixer bowl and stir a few times with a spatula.

5. Pour the batter evenly into each cupcake liner. Place in the oven, and bake the cupcakes for 17-19 minutes.  A toothpick inserted in the middle should come out mostly clean; you do not want it to come out completely dry.

6. Let cake cool in pan for at least 5-10 minutes. Gently remove cupcakes from pan and place on cooling rack.

For Strawberry Filling:

1. Combine strawberries, confectioner’s sweetener, and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook and stir until raspberries break down, sweetener dissolves, and sauce is heated through around 12-15 minutes.

2. Remove from heat and press sauce through a fine-mesh strainer to remove seeds.

3. Place back on the stove top at medium-low heat and add xantham gum, whisking quickly to thicken (1-2 minutes)- remove from stove top and set aside to let continue to thicken and come to room temperature.

For Strawberry Frosting:

1. Mix cream cheese until it’s fluffy.

2. Add butter and mix well.

3. Add in frozen strawberries. Mix well. The strawberries will break up into small particles.

4. Add in strawberry puree.

5. Slowly add in confectioner’s sugar until you get the consistency you want.

Assembly

1. Take individual cupcake and with a small spoon or knife, make a hole about a ½ of an inch long and wide – can make the hole as big as you want- just want to make sure the strawberry filling isn’t leaking out of the bottom or side of the cooled cupcake.

2. Place strawberry filling in hole, and then cover top of cupcake with frosting. If you want you can also garnish your cupcakes with a raspberry and lemon zest if you are feeling wild and crazy. Eat immediately or within three days.
