1 (3oz) pkg strawberry jello
2 3/4 flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 C fresh strawberry puree with 1 Tlb sugar

Beat butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, jello powder, until smooth.
Add salt, baking powder and flour (one cup at a time) until well blended and creamy.
In a small blender puree fresh strawberries and sugar until it yields 3/4 C strawberry puree then add milk and batter and blend smooth. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full with batter. Bake 350 approx 20 minutes (don’t over cook or they will be dry). Let cool on wire rack. Once completely cool pipe frosting on top. YUM!

Yields — 3 Dozen. Picture shows jumbo cupcakes and in that case, will not yield as many.
