C is for cookie...

Well apparently due to the obesity crisis Cookie Monster's song is now 'cookies are a sometimes food'. Doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it?

In honour of an afternoon tea soiree I was attending on Saturday afternoon I decided to attempt cookies & cream cupcakes. Not content with pinching someone else's recipe, I set about devising my own.

RIP Cookie Monster Cookies & Cream Cupcakes
125g butter, softened & cubed
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup milk
3/4 packet Oreos (or similar chocolate sandwich cookie) crushed
Keep remaining Oreos whole, for decoration

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Prepare cupcake trays with papers. Cream butter, sugar & vanilla together until smooth and creamy. Add eggs one at a time. Sift half the flour into mixture, then add half the milk. Repeat with remaining flour and milk. Stir in cookies until just combined.

Spoon into prepared cases and bake for approximately 15 minutes until cupcakes spring back when lightly touched.

Top with buttercream and half an Oreo, and voila! These will entice any cookie monster living in your house :)
