Day 314: Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes

Yield: 12 cupcakes
Time (Start to Finish): 45 min

¼ cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
pinch salt
½ tsp baking powder
¼ cup milk

1 package chocolate chip cookie dough

1 package vanilla frosting

1. Preheat oven to 350F and line 12 cupcake tins with papers
2. In a mixer, cream the butter and the sugar until smooth
3. Add the eggs and vanilla and scrape the bowl
4. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder and alternate with the milk, adding half at a time
5. Take the batter and fill each cupcake tin about ½ filled or a little less
6. Take the cookie dough and make a ball about 1 inch across
7. Place it in the center of each cupcake
8. Bake for about 20 min until they are cooked though
9. When cooled, take the frosting and with a star tip pipe it onto the top of the cupcakes

Rating: 4 strawberries
Notes: ok, my cupcakes fell in the center, did yours? They still tasted awesome, but they didn’t have the best mouth feel, or look so good. I think something went wrong in my cupcake base…maybe try just granulated sugar next time, or if you are really nervous, use a box mix for this. I thought of this idea when I was asking people what I should make today and someone said cupcakes and someone else said cookies. Why not please two people at the same time!! The icing can be cream cheese if you like, but I though a classic simple box buttercream is where its at. I hope you like them and try them. They would also be good with oatmeal cookie dough I think..maybe next time.
