Yesterday our middle daughter turned seven! We always send in a fun treat with the girls to share with their class for their birthday. This year, she kept asking for a cookie cake. We can't send in full cakes, just because it is too much for the teachers to have to cut and dish it all out. So I usually send in cupcakes. This year I tried to honor my daughter's wishes and make Cookie Cupcakes! They were such a hit that my hubby has already requested them for his birthday too.
These are so easy, that I hate to even call this a recipe. I will be making cupcakes for her skating party, she got the cookie cake she wanted for our family celebration at home, so I needed something quick and easy for the classroom treat. These were so easy. The fact they are so yummy is just a bonus.

Ready to bake refrigerated cookie squares
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a regular size muffin pan with cooking spray. Combine two of the cookie squares and place in muffin cup. Bake for 20-24 minutes. Allow to cool in muffin pan. Your cupcakes will sink in the middle, making a nice little cup for you to fill. When cool, run a butter knife around the edge of your cookie cupcake to remove it.
Using a pasty bag (or simply a sandwich baggie with the corner trimmed off), top your cookie cupcake with frosting.
This is such a great recipe to personalize. I used chocolate chip cookies and strawberry frosting. Use your favorite cookie flavor and frosting. Or instead of frosting, top with ice cream and hot fudge. You could also add mix-ins to the cookie dough or even on top of the frosting. Have fun making it your own. What's your favorite combination?
