I referenced these little beauties from my weekend post, and here is some more detail.
These are chocolate chip cookie-vanilla cupcakes from Martha Stewart Living (July 2011 issue)
The recipes themselves are fantastic; worth buying the issue for!
She starts with a basic cookie recipe, a recipe which my oven burned when I made these darling minis to top the cupcakes:
There is cookie dough pressed into the bottom of the cupcake wrapper, then the silky and delicious vanilla cake batter is placed on top.
Finally, a dollop of creamy vanilla buttercream.
