Cookie Cupcakes Recipe

These cupcakes taste very similar to fluffy chocolate chip cookies and were the signature dish of my husband's Aunt Lois when I first married into the family. His mother began making them also and they are her most-requested dish. Even when making traditional desserts for holidays, she adds these cupcakes. She even gives them as gifts.—Sue Smith, Joaquin, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons packed brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  • 2. Spoon about 2 tablespoons dough into each of twelve paper-lined muffin cups, filling each halfway. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes or until edges are light brown.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat the brown sugar, egg and salt for 5 minutes or until lighter in color. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
