Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? The problem I have is most recipes seem to
make enough batter for 2 dozen cookies. Now
if I had 2 dozen cookies lying around my kitchen, I’d probably end up eating
every single cookie in a matter of days. I know this because it happened last weekend.
Just last night I had another craving for something
sweet. Instead of going through all the
work of baking and then regretting eating so many cookies, I decided to Google
a recipe for just 1 cookie. To my
excitement, I found a recipe for a 1-Minute
Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug.
Not only was it fast and easy, but this quick cookie recipe
was far gooier and delicious than the recipe I tried from Martha Stewart and I
don’t feel guilty about having just 1 cookie.
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon brown sugar, firmly packed
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon (pinch) salt
1 egg yolk
3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1-2 Tablespoons chocolate chips
Microwave butter in a mug until melted, 30 seconds to 1
minute. With a spoon, mix in sugars, vanilla extract and salt until
well-combined. Mix in egg yolk until no traces of the yolk are seen. Mix in
flour. Fold in chocolate chips.
Microwave on high for 40 seconds, or a maximum of 50
seconds. The cookie may look undercooked
on the top, but be fully cooked below.
