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.
Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup
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!
