We have a guest!

Hey everyone! I'm super excited- we have another guest!!!!!! This time, it's Book Blogger from Life... The Way I See It! Thanks so much for doing this!! And the timing was just fine(;

Hello everyone! When Sophie asked me to guest post on her blog, I was really excited! Just to let you know, I'm not too good at this whole guest post thing, but I'll do my best. :)

This is me.

The horse's name is Pride, but he isn't mine. He's my friend's friend's horse. :)

I'm a cook, a musician, a writer, a read, and a lover of life and God.

I am attempting to write a novel (my second one!!!)....

...when I grow up I'm going to be a musician...

...I am majorly picky about spelling and grammar...

...I love, love, love my camera...

...and I love to bake.

Here is one of my favourite recipes, for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes! 
Sorry about the pictures. I'm not much of a photographer. 

Here. I'll just get all the pictures over with first, and then you can scroll to the bottom for the recipe.

So, basically what you do, is make chocolate chip cookie dough into balls and freeze it overnight.
Here are mine.

Then you make cupcake batter, and stick the frozen balls into the batter.
Like so...

 Now bake them. Mmm....

Iced and sprinkled with chocolate chips....

The finished product. Doesn't that cookie dough in the middle look scrumptious?

For the cookie dough:
2 sticks softened butter (one stick is 1/4 of a cup)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp milk
1 tbsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips

For the cupcakes:
3 sticks softened butter
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
4 large eggs
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract

For the frosting:
3 sticks softened butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract


To make the cookie dough, combine the butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 mins. Beat in milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Beat in the flour and salt until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Using a 1.5 tbsp scoop, shape the dough into balls or tubes. Freeze on a parchment lined baking sheet overnight.

To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350° F. Line two cupcake pans with paper liners (24 total). In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter and brown sugar. Beat together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir together to blend. Add the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl on low speed, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients, mixing each addition just until incorporated. Blend in the vanilla.

Using a 3 tbsp scoop, fill the prepared cupcake liners 2/3 full with the cupcake batter. Place a frozen cookie dough ball on the top center of each cupcake.

Bake at 350 for 16-18 mins.

To make the frosting, combine the butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the powdered sugar until smooth. Beat in the salt, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth and combined.

Frost the cupcakes and sprinkle with mini chocolate chips!

Makes 24 cupcakes.
