My favorite part of baking cookies has always been eating the dough.
Whenever I bake, I'm pretty sure half of that delectable, unadulterated dough doesn't even make it into the oven.
If you also happen to be someone with a serious weakness for cookie dough, you might want to pay attention.
The culinary masterminds over at Beyond Frosting just whipped up a new dessert recipe that will seriously change your life: Ultimate Cookie Dough Cupcakes.
Yeah, I know. Let's just take a moment to let those four glorious words sink in.
So, what exactly is this brilliant half-baked good?
Beyond Frosting describes it as a "vanilla malt cupcake with a cookie dough frosting that is topped with a two-bite chocolate chip cookie."
But if you ask me, it pretty much looks like a ball of pure happiness baked into a little paper liner.
To get your hands on these bad boys, Beyond Frosting was nice enough to give everyone the scoop on these sweet treats.
All you have to do is throw on an apron, gather up the ingredients and follow the recipe directions.
Within no time, you'll have your cookie dough and eat it, too.
