Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Frosting

Peanut butter cookie dough frosting tastes just like cookie dough – after all, it is cookie dough (lightened up a bit)!

Take safe-to-eat peanut butter cookie dough, add two tablespoons of whole milk or heavy whipping cream for every cup of dough, and you’ve got perfectly pipe-able peanut butter cookie dough frosting.

Which cupcake flavor will you frost with peanut butter cookie dough frosting?  Here are my top picks:

    Connie – The cupcake you are baking this weekend is actually the one in the photo. That’s what I used the frosting on. It worked really well although the peanut butter flavor is so strong that some people complained that it overpowered the vanilla. Peanut butter lovers didn’t mind that though. :)

    How would you rate this frosting compared to other peanut butter frostings….would you consider it a favorite?

    i sound like a pig but i usually eat 3 of the test cupcakes plain,one an hour after cooling, just to make sure i can put down true feelings..then i frost the next day,but after eating 3 of them, it can be overpowered by peanut butter the next day:) I dont know why im so obsessed with cupcakes, i even have the pandora cupcake charm:)everyone at works loves the fact that im obsessed with cupcakes:)

    Cakedivafefe – Great question. It’s different. It’s not as light and fluffy as some other peanut butter frostings, but it’s great if you love the taste of cookie dough. I really love the brown sugar in there. You don’t get that in most frostings.

    I need to clean the drool off my screen.
