CUPCAKES: Line 3 cupcake trays with 36 cupcake liners. Place a lemon flavored Oreo cookie at the bottom of each liner.
Make cupcake batter according to box directions; adding water, oil, and eggs. Distribute batter evenly between the 36 liners and bake according to box directions. Check baking time often so that they do not over bake. Cool completely.
