Cookie Dough Cupcakes… The Recipe!

I was looking for ways to decorate cupcakes when i saw several recipes for a cookie dough cupcake… i liked the concept and wondered how it would tastes? So i came up with my own combo using a new vanilla cupcake recipe incorporated with ready made cookie dough … the result?! AMAZING CUPCAKES!!!!

You can make those yourself in ONE hour… the ingredients are available in your cupboard… and your house will smell like a little heavenly bakery 😀

I made two types: Cookie Dough Cupcakes and Oreo Cupcakes… both from the same cupcake batch…

Before you start, take your milk, eggs, and butter out of the fridge and keep them for about an hour in your kitchen so they will be in room temperature -they must be- and right before you start, pre heat your over to 170 C and then start mixing your ingredients…

What do you need?

For the cupcake: Flour, Milk, Vanillla, Eggs, Baking Powder, Butter, Cookie Dough, Oreos, and Sugar

Good ingrediets are EVERYTHING: you must use good vanilla like Foster Clarks, none of that powder vanilla things or your cupcakes will smell like eggs!

This is the cookie dough i used… available in Sultan Center

You need cupcake paper cups, i used small and large ones... black and silver

Line your cupcake baking trays... available in two sizes from IKEA

This recipe makes about 12 Big cupcakes and 12 small cupcakes

200 g of All Purpose flour sifted with 3 teaspoons of Baking Powder, or you can use 200 g Self Raising Flour, keep aside for now
Measure 175g of White Sugar
Add the sugar to your mixing bowl

Measure 175g Butter, thats 1 and 3/4 Sticks, it must be really soft and at room temperature

Add the butter to the sugar

Start beating the butter and sugar together

Meanwhile break your 3 eggs, one at a time, in a seperate bowl

When your sugar butter mixture looks like this, stop the beating

Add your egg and start beating again. When it's well mixed, add the 2nd egg, mix, add your third egg and mix

When your mix starts to look like this... its time to add the flour so stop beating

Don't add all the flour at once. Add a litte at a time, mix until well incorporated, then add more until you are done

You need 60 ml milk (4 tblspoons) and add a dash of vanilla to it (i add until i can smell the vanilla) and then add it to your mixture and mix

When your mix looks sandy and grainy... you know you are done! Don't over mix it... stop the machie at once

You will need a little spoon or ladel to scoop your mix... a tiny ice cream scooper will do as well

Scoop a little cupcake mixture

Insert into your cupcake cups

This is more than enough... don't fill it to the brim it should be 3/4 full only

For the cookie dough cupcake, open the thawed cookie doughs and cut each in half

with the tip of your knife, add a half cookie dough into your mix and push it in

It should look like this...

With the remaining mix add a couple of oreos to the cupcake mixture

Start beating the oreos with the mix... the machine will break them to little pieces

When your done mixing, stop and scoop into your cupcake cups... then send your trays to the oven

After about 15-18 minutes for the large one and 10-14 minutes for the small ones... they are done! Check yours with a toothpick before taking them out... and be patient as they take a bit to cook... unfortunately i overcooked mine a bit but they turned out fine

While your cupcakes cook, prepare the icing... for the icing: you need about 160 g of icing... u can also use 200g to make more icing

Add 75g soft butter to your mixing bowl

Put a sieve on top of your mixing bowl

Add the sugar, and start shaking so the sugar you use is lump free

You can swirl it around if its too lumpy like mine

When you are done sieving the icing sugar, start beating on low speed

When your sugar and butter are well mixed, add 2-3 tablespoons of milk and vanilla mix... and mix until you get that consistency

Now the frosting is done, you can add the colors you like to it and have a blast! The best ones yet are the Mccormic ones i found in TSC Al-ahmadi!

Take a little frosting in a small bowl and add the color of your choice. I tried to use a piping bag but it went terribly wrong and messy fa i discarded it

For my oreo cupcakes i wanted pink frosting... so i added a tiiiny drop of red food coloring

Start mixing well... if the color is too light add another drop and mix well

Now the color is right ...

When your cupcakes are VERY COOL add a smudge of frosting on top and starts smoothing around with a normal knife

Done with the frosting

I made chocolate frosting for my Cookie Dough Cupcakes... just add 60g bitter cocoa powder to your frosting mix and mix well

Add the sprinkles of your choice

They smell good...

They are tiny and cute

In decorating them the sky is your limit! Put whatever you feel like top of them...

Bite into the Cookie Dough Cupcake and you will find a little cookie surprise inside! ITS AMAZING!

My mom loved them so much, she actually ate a whole one her self !!! Which is saying a lot considering she splits tiny chocolate pieces in half before eating them! She also decided to pack them up and take them to a gathering of women we were invited to 😀
