Updated Sep 24, 2020

Ingredients

Cupcakes

Frosting

  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups. Let cookie dough stand at room temperature 10 minutes.
  • 2
    In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Add lemon juice, lemon peel and eggs. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH EGGS.)
  • 3
    Beat mixture with electric mixer on medium speed just until blended.
  • 4
    Spoon into baking cups.
  • 5
    Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cupcake comes out clean. Remove cupcakes from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 6
    In medium bowl, beat powdered sugar, butter and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice with electric mixer on low speed until mixed. Add remaining lemon juice, 1 teaspoon at a time, until creamy and smooth. Frost cupcakes.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use decorative cupcake liners to make your cupcakes even prettier. Garnish with a few blueberries, raspberries or thin slices of strawberries.
  • tip 2
    To save time, use a container of prepared fluffy frosting in place of the frosting in the recipe. You can stir in a teaspoon of grated lemon peel for lemon flavor.
  • tip 3
    Tip: Lightly spray muffin tins with cooking spray before adding cupcake liners to keep them in place when filling with batter. More cooking spray tips.
