  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons butter, room temp
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pulse cookies in a food processor until crumbly.
  2. Fill cupcake liners 1/3 full of batter.
  3. Sprinkle a light layer of cookie crumbs on top of the batter.
  4. Pour the remaining batter on top until liners are about 3/4 full.
  5. Bake according to cupcake recipe instructions.
  6. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
  7. Once cool, spread one tablespoon of frosting on top and then lightly press the frosted side of the cupcake into cookie crumbs.
