40 Second Cookie in a Mug


A couple of days ago, I was craving chocolate chip cookies but I didn't want to make a whole batch. I could literally eat the whole batch myself because Hubby isn't big on cookies. So most of the time, I only make cookies for special occasions. Anyway, I've seen those "cookie in a mug" recipes and thought I'd try it out. My first two tries following 2 different recipes were YUCK-O. Dry and disgusting. I finally did my own recipe and cooked less time and hey, my cookie in a mug isn't bad. But if you try this, beware. I love my cookies warm, gooey and very chocolatey. :) 

Here's my version:

Grab a mug.
Melt 1 TBSP butter in mug (about 60 seconds in microwave)
Add 1 TBSP white sugar
Add 1 TBSP brown sugar
Add a pinch of salt
Add 1/2 TSP of sour cream (I almost always put sour cream in my cookie dough)
Add 1 egg YOLK
Add just under 1/4 cup of flour
Add 1-2 TBSP chocolate chips

Stir all ingredients together and microwave for 40 seconds. Time may vary depending on your microwave, but I definitely think 60 seconds is WAY too long (which is what most of these recipes call for) It will cook a little more on it's own after microwaving. 

It turns out warm, gooey and very chocolatey. Very rich. I don't know how often I could eat this, but it certainly takes care of a craving without spending lots of time in the kitchen! 

I think my "Serendipity" mug is very fitting.... ;) 

 til the next time,
