Cookies! And cream!!

So this insane heat wave finally broke (sort of), so I felt that I wouldn’t have a heat stroke if I turned on the oven and played with flour and eggs again!

I stumbled upon this recipe for cookies and cream cupcakes and thought, “duh.”  It’s only the best flavor of ice cream ever, so what’s not to love about having it in cupcake form??  Nothing.

A couple of irritations with this though: 1) if you follow the recipe, you need 2 packs of Oreos–I’m cheap and didn’t want extras lying around my kitchen, so no cookie crumble topping.  2) I kind of loathe working with cream cheese, so while the frosting tastes pretty amazing, it’s for sure more of a glaze than I would ever want it to be.

Other than that, I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out 🙂
