Name that cookie!

Anaheim, CA(Zone 10a)

Ok Folks, I need your help. I'm looking for a cookie recipe that my grandmother used years ago. It had the texture / softness of the top of a cupcake. And looked like one too. I can picture them in my mind, with a bit of powdered sugar on top. She always made chocolate, but I suppose you could use any flavoring.

Does this sound familiar to anyone???

Any help would be greatly appreciated as no one is the family has been able to find it.

Thanks in advance!

There is a cookie known as "muffin tops". My mom used to make these and I made them for my kids back in the day. There are a zillion versions. You don't describe whether they were chocolate or with nuts or raisins or mangoes. Maybe Google. Hope this helps.

Thanks MaypopKaurel! But, I'm not sure that's the same thing. It was definitely a cookie, but really soft...almost like a cake / brownie mix.

I went searching Dawg and found that if look for "muffin top cookies" you get cookie recipes. If you look for "muffin tops" you get love handles hanging over jeans. lol But, if you look for "muffin top recipes" you will find cake-like muffin recipes made in special pans that are the size and shape of cookies but taste like muffins/cupcakes. You can make them in regular muffin pans by using scant batter and baking for a shorter time. This is what I used to make. They were popular in the eighties and you could get them in bakeries as an alternative to a whole super sized muffin. Could this be it?

That very well could be. All I remember (25 years ago) is that the "cookies" made from chocolate, very soft, and covered in powdered sugar. Makes me hungry just thinking about it!

Use a chocolate muffin or cupcake batter. Google 'chocolate muffin top" recipes for inspiration. I don't use box mixes but some people convert cake recipes to muffin and cupcake recipes.
