Introduction: Microwave Cookie in a Cup

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!
