Have you ever been in the mood for a Little Something Sweet but not in the mood to bake a whole batch? Credit is due to one of my daughters who found this quick, easy and yummy recipe on Buzzfeed Food, and to Number 2 Pencil where the recipe originated. There are more single serving recipes where this one came from.
Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon of firmly packed dark brown sugar
3 drops of vanilla extract
small pinch of Kosher salt
1 egg yolk (discard the egg white)
scant 1/4 of all purpose flour
2 Tablespoons of semi sweet chocolate chips
Melt one tablespoon of butter in a microwave safe mug. Add one tablespoon of white sugar, one tablespoon of brown sugar, a few drops of vanilla and a pinch of kosher salt. Stir with a fork. Separate your egg and add the yolk only to your cup. Stir again. You will have a soupy mixture. Measure a slightly less than full1/4 cup of all-purpose flour and stir to combine. Add the chocolate chips, and give a final stir. Pop your mug in the microwave for 40-60 seconds depending on your microwave. Start checking for doneness at the 40 second mark. You’ll know it’s ready when it looks like a cookie. Serve warm and a la mode if desired.
Hon, Melissa from Number 2 Pencil couldn’t have said it better. “There you have it, a homemade chocolate chip cookie in just a few minutes…and no mess to clean up.”
