chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes

These may not sound all that exciting, but I always fall for the dessert surprise in disguise.  I was shocked to discover that both the cupcake and the frosting taste EXACTLY (IMHO) like chocolate chip cookie dough. They are supposed to be stuffed with cookie dough balls, but if that’s too much for you, they are equally delicious without.  Really, they were much, much tastier than I had anticipated. Highly recommend to any chocolate chip cookie dough fans!!!

pumpkin whoopie pies (with maple cream-cheese filling)

PUMPKIN!!!  I’ve made a lot of pumpkin treats this fall, but haven’t had the time or patience for good photos.  These whoopie pies were so fun (not to mention super moist and full of flavor), I took the recipe from brown-eyed baker and then threw a few butterscotch chips into some, chocolate chips into others.  All were tasty, but chocolate was the favorite.  But then again, when is chocolate not the favorite in any given situation?  (Nevermind, chocolate ice cream, not a favorite.)  Anyway, give these a try, see what you like best.  If you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, you’d be just fine without any chips at all.

oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies

More cookies!  Don’t worry, I’ll change it up next week when I’ve got a birthday, can’t wait to try a new cake recipe.  (Haven’t decided on one yet, so I’m open to any ideas!!)

But as for these, I’d been drooling as I watched them circulate the blogosphere for months!  Couldn’t wait to try them, but I had to get my hands on some double stuff Oreos first.   You know, I’m not a big fan of the plain, ol’ Oreo cookie (there are so many other things I’d rather have for the calories), but when they are paired with something else, magic happens.  Bring on the Oreo cheesecake, the Oreo dirt dessert, and of course the cookies-n-cream ice cream  and shakes.   See?  Magic!!

I finally got to make these to share at my boys’ cub scout meeting.  (They just started and they are all so cute by the way.  What a great excuse for me to try a new recipe every week!) I knew they’d be so fun for kids, and who else could handle this much sugar than a bunch of high energy 8-10 year old boys?  Needless to say, they were a hit.
