Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way.

Ingredients

COOKIE CRUST

8-10
snickerdoodle cookies, crushed and made into crumbs
1/2-3/4 stick
melted butter
i always have extra cookies and butter on hand, if needed.

CUPCAKES

1 box
butter cake mix

FROSTING

1 c
butter, softened
3 c
powdered sugar
2 Tbsp
half & half
1 tsp
clear vanilla extract
1 tsp
butter flavoring
1/8 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
cream of tartar
cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom to taste **cardamom is very strong, so be careful*
cookie piece and fresh nutmeg (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
CRUST
Line standard muffin tins with paper liners.
Mix cookie crumbs with melted butter and mix together thoroughly, either using a food processor or crush with mallet in large ziplock bag. The mixture should stick when you pinch the crumbs but still stay light a fluffy when broken apart. Place one tablespoon of cookie crumbs in each cupcake liner and press down, forming a compact crust. Bake for 4-6 minutes until the crust turns a slight golden brown.
2
CAKE
Prepare cake mix as directed.
Fill cupcakes liners 3/4 full with cake batter, on top of the crust.

Bake as directed. Cool completely.
3
FROSTING
Add all of the frosting ingredients to a large bowl and mix until fluffy. I recommend you adding the spices a little at a time, to achieve your desired flavor preference.
4
GARNISH (optional)
I sprinkled some cinnamon sugar, fresh grated nutmeg, and topped with a piece of Snickerdoodle Cookie.
Enjoy!
