cookie dough stuffed cookie cups

July 23, 2012

Got a cookie-dough lover in your life?


I do! Chris is one of my best taste-testers/friends and a future surgeon that I would already trust with my life.


But even when you’re one of the most brilliant people I know…the MCAT still sucks. Majorly.


So we thought it’d be a nice surprise for him to come home to a congratulatory sidewalk chalk mural 🙂 and some special celebratory baked goods, of course!


I think he liked it


Chris is actually retaking the exam in a few days–not because he did poorly the first time at ALL, but because he’s kinda crazy, will not be satisfied with a score that isn’t disgustingly high, and needs to be practically perfect and ridiculous. Just like me 🙂


To make these cookie dough bombs, first bake some cookie dough in a muffin tin.


Indent little grooves in the cookie cups for the cookie dough filling.


I had a proud mama moment here 🙂



The face of a cookie that only the baker would love hahaha

Kidding. It’s beautiful, Chris.


Send him some good luck and positive energy! (not that he needs it)

Plus we all know he’s really just in it for more celebratory baked goods anyway.
