Whether you are experiencing yet another snow storm, your children are home from school for February Vacation week, or just because you want something sweet; these recipes using cookie dough as an ingredient are sure to be a hit with your family. The attached video shows you how to easily put together a batch of mouth-watering Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars. Or, you can try a batch of Cookie Cupcakes that taste like a fluffy chocolate chip cookie.

Cookie Cupcakes

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 TBSP sugar
  • 6 TBSP packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup, plus 2 TBSP flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Filling

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet morsels
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, optional

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars-beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; then gradually add it to the butter mixture. Mix well.

Spoon around 2 tablespoons of dough into 12 paper-lined cupcake/muffin cups-filling about halfway. Bake at 375 degrees for around 10 minutes, or until the edges are browned.

Meanwhile, you can prepare the filling. In a small bowl, beat the egg, brown sugar and salt for around 5 minutes. Stir in the chocolate chips as well as the walnuts if you're using them.

Remove the partially baked cupcakes from the oven and spoon a rounded spoonful of the filling into the center of each cupcake. Place in the oven and bake for an additional 12-14 minutes or until a deep golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before moving cupcakes to a wire rack. Cool completely before serving. Enjoy!
