Cookie dough is tasty just by itself, but when it is added to these simple vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting, it becomes something else entirely. Start by making the cupcake batter, baking the cupcakes, and letting them cool. Once they are ready for the frosting, make sure to pipe on plenty, as it needs to support the cookies. The chocolate chip cookies (also known as the cookie dough in these treats) are placed vertically into the frosting with one end peeking out. Delightful!
