My favorite thing to bake [by far] is cupcakes but so many people prefer your good `ol fashioned chocolate chip cookies. I admit that there is no better smell to fill up your house with, but I guess I’ve gotten bored with just baking cookies, and like I mentioned in my last baking post, baking gives me a chance to use my creativity a little bit so I came up with this take on so many’s favorite… Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes.
Make the cookie dough mix first and place in freezer. Fill up the cupcake liners with batter a little less than half way. Drop a small ball of cookie dough into the cupcake batter. (DO NOT push it down, when baking the dough will fall!)
On a separate baking sheet bake mini cookies to garnish the cupcakes.
I made a basic vanilla frosting which is
- 2 cups of powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Beat on a medium speed until smooth. If you want your frosting to be thicker, add more powdered sugar!
I definitely recommend pairing with a glass of milk… I mean after all, cookies taste better with milk!
