Reviews for Cookie Cupcakes
"love theis cupcakes ! i have no problem making them :)"
"Due to a few comments below, we have reviewed and retested this recipe again. We found the cupcakes were much better by baking them at 375 and for a few minutes longer. Also, the filling should be beaten longer than just combining it. By going about 5 minutes, the sugar gets dissolved and the filling thickens slightly, which allows for a better end result in the cupcake. These changes will be updated here soon.We did not have trouble removing the paper liners if you remove them slowly. If you're still having trouble, you could try foil liners, which tear away easier, or grease the muffin cups well and omit the papers.Taste of Home Test Kitchen"
"They are delicious, but I agree you should make more than the 12 it says. And be sure to bake the batter long enough to get it really baked before you add the filling. We had to pry them off the pan and out of the liners, but they were really good. I baked them quite a bit longer than it said, but could still have used a little more."
"very good, however i have a few pointers,i had too much filling, will try 3/4 cup choc chips, next time, i sprayed the pan with pam then i floured the bottom, let cool completely to avoid breakage as they are delicate, place on paper towels to soak up excess butter, then on to a clean paper towel to soak up even more, i will try with white choc chips next time because i love white choc"
"too many choc chips, try 3/4 cup"
"These were great! They were SO good. Instead of using walnuts, I used chopped peanuts. They turned out just as good. And surprisingly enough- they do taste exactly like a cookie! Would definitely recommend. The yummy filling also eliminates the need to frost them; which is a positive for me!"
"great taste, serve warm with ice cream"
"They tasted really good & everyone loved them, the only complaint I have is they collapsed so they looked like bowls after they were cooled lol."
"Very tasty and easy to make. Highly recomended."
"I got rave reviews, but I felt like the number estimated was too low, plan on making more than is given."
