Great Recipe -- Changes: I didn't add Parsley & Subsituted Sliced Almonds for Pine Nuts. I do like Pine Nuts in Pesto, but Almonds are a wonderful LOW $$ sub with absolutely no sacrifice to the flavor. P.S. I typically add some pepper to taste & sometimes 1/4 Jalapeno from my garden for a lovely spicy pesto. **TO FREEZE: Pour 1 Cup of Pesto Mix into a Quart Freezer Bag. Close Bag, then Smoosh around the mixture until the bag is evenly covered so it looks like you have a square 'Pesto Pancake' ;0). Then, when you need Pesto, open bag, break off a chunk and add to your cooking recipe! MUCH MUCH EASIER & Less MESSY than freezing in cube trays - Trust me!

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies
Very good Classic PB Cookie! Only Modification: Used 1.5 cups of PB as I am not shy with PB flavor. Plus I used these to make PB Blossom Cookies (i.e. the cookie with the hershey kiss on top) so I wanted the cookie to hold together a bit more (sometimes PB cookies can be more crumbly) --- baked my PB blossoms 9 minutes = perfect!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.
This was good, but not the Best Cupcake I've ever baked/eaten. Honestly, I think it was the cookie dough recipe that 'threw off' the flavoring on this -- i.e. too much like bad tub cookies I've bought from cub scouts fundraisers... - so perhaps I will try this again with a different choc chip cookie recipe. Other than that, the consistency, texture and flavor of the cake itself was light and moist. Perfect companion to the dense cookie center. No problem cooking or with the cookie center (as agreed you cannot skip the freezing process nor overcook this - mine were done in 17 minutes exactly!) There is a recipe for a brownie middle, I might try that next ... as I'm spoiled and think black bottom cupcakes are the best cupcake there is (it's the one with the cream cheese filling -- i.e. like a mini cheesecake in the middle ... ) All and all great idea!
