Day 63 – Cookie Dough Cupcakes with Biscoff Frosting

2 Oct

Cookie Dough Cupcakes with Biscoff Frosting (recipe below from Tortillas and Honey). Is there anything about that that doesn’t sound good? I mean, really! Cookie dough in anything sounds like a plan to me…

The cakes are between a pound cake and an angel food cake.  By itself, it doesn’t bring a lot to the table, but the cookie dough is quite good.

Biscoff-Frosting

The frosting has that perfect buttercream texture and tastes exactly like Biscoff cookies.  The spread is extremely powerful, so you really don’t get any other flavor, which isn’t a bad thing if you like Biscoff cookies.

Together, the balance is nice, but the frosting is definitely in charge.  Again, if you like Biscoff, this is your cupcake!  The cupcake is a nice palate for the frosting, but the cookie dough takes a back seat to the frosting, which is strange cause it’s a strong flavor by itself.

(Note: The spread isn’t necessarily easy to find. I had my mom ship it to me cause I couldn’t find it at my local stores in NY.)
