C is for Cookie. C is for Cup

D is for delicious. E is for eat this delicious treat! I've been reading a lot of children's books to my sleeping audience....

This is a quick one 'cause my sleeping audience is about to wake up. I was surfing around the interwebs the other night on my phone when I stumbled on a recipe for a cookie in a cup. As in, an instant treat. And even though we almost always have cookie dough in the freezer, and even though it was 10pm and OMG the baby has been asleep for an hour and a half, girl get yourself to bed so you can get your 8 hours, I had to try it out.
Verdict is yummy. Try it out if you need a little sweet and are a little short on time. Like at 10pm tonight.

Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup
one cookie 

1 T. butter, melted
1 T. sugar
1 T. brown sugar
1 egg yolk (save the white for breakfast!)
1/8 t. vanilla
pinch of salt
scant 1/4 c. white whole wheat flour
2 - 3 T. mini chocolate chips

1. In a microwave safe mug combine butter and sugar, mixing until well combined

2. Add egg and vanilla until incorporated

3. Mix in flour

4. Add chocolate chips until desired chippiness is met

5. Microwave on high for 30-60 seconds, checking after 30 seconds and adding additional time in 10 second increments, if needed. Mine was done in 30 seconds

serve warm and enjoy!

  1. Homemade cookie in about a minute? This is dangerous! And when I say that, I also mean I can't wait to try it! ps. found you on houseblogging

  2. I just ran into the kitchen to make 6 of these for my hubby & boys. (p.s. I also have a Maddox born 11/23/11) yummy! The kids are gathered around the kitchen island eating them now. Thanks for posting!

    1. I can't believe you have a Maddox too! How cool!

  3. Oh I think I might just have to try these.

  4. I tried your recipe today since I was having serious cravings for unhealthy things. haha It turned out okay! I was surprised how poofed up it got.

  5. Hmmm, did you use just the yolk? Maybe next time try just half the yolk and a 1/2 t. of water. Mine didn't pouf much, but I'll have to test out that technique.

  6. Seriously, can you beat a chocolate chip cookie? This could be dangerous.

    I tried this, all was goo till it was put in the microwave. It made the cookie extremely dry and completely undesirable to eat.

    1. Huh, that's weird. Sounds like it was in for too long. I definitely like my cookies on the gooier side, not dry.
