Disclaimer: Mug or cup will be very hot.
Hate making an entire batch of cookies? Here's a quick and easy way to have a satisfying, sweet snack without all the mess.
Microwave safe mug or glass cup.
1 Tbl butter
1 Tbl granulated sugar
1 Tbl firmly packed brown sugar
5-6 drops of vanilla extract
Small pinch of kosher salt
1 egg yolk
Slightly less than 1/4 cup of all purpose flour
2 heaping tablespoons of semi sweet chocolate chips
Step 1: Melt Butter
Melt butter in cup, do not boil.
Step 2: First Mix
Add sugars, vanilla, and salt to the cup then stir. When adding the vanilla, I poured it in the cap first to ensure I didn't accidentally pour the whole bottle in.
Step 3: Egg Yolk
Separate the yolk from the white, and either discard the white or save it for a later date. Then add just the yolk and stir again.
Step 4: Flour and Chips
First, add the flour and stir. Your mixture will now look like cookie dough.
Then, add the chips and stir
Step 5: Cook
Cook your mixture in the microwave for 40-60 seconds, one minute being the max. Start checking the cookie at 40 seconds. If you find the cookie is too dry, it's likely been cooked too long.
Let it cool just a bit and ENJOY!
