All she had to say was chocolate chip cookie stuffed, and I knew I had to try it. Jenny, over at Picky Palate, came up with an amazing combo. I'm kicking myself! Why didn't I think of that?! I don't usually love cupcakes. Usually being the key word, because I will make these again - no question. I'll cut & paste the recipe here, but check out her blog for the gorgeous pictures. I ate mine without frosting, and used my own very favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe, and they were FABULOUS. Thanks for a great recipe, Picky Palate!
