Sugar Cookie Cupcakes

If you have ever had a deliciously thick and soft sugar cookie smeared with fluffy frosting then you are going to LOVE these! πŸ™‚

These cupcakes are not often talked about and when I was searching for a creation of one, I saw that many people hadn’t even heard of a sugar cookie cupcake.

They are just like those sugar cookies but in cupcake form. The cake is super soft and tender due to the addition of the cream and is complimented with a luscious and creamy frosting. πŸ˜‰

I absolutely loved these cupcakes. They were such a pleasant surprise and im sure that they will be loved by anyone who makes them! πŸ™‚ The frosting can be tinted pink for an even more sugar cookie clone and the addition of sprinkles is a must.
