You've heard of the mug cake by now right? And you've been wooed by the brownie in a mug. Now, introducing..... the Cup Cookie.
Indeed. I said Cup COOKIE.
I'll say it one more time, just so you understand the importance of it. CUP COOKIE!
All of the blissful wonderousness of a delicious, moist, warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie... ready to pop into your mouth in about 2 minutes.
(I told you you were going to hate me.)
This recipe originates from the blog No. 2 Pencil .... you can go ahead and hate her if you'd like. She also has a recipe for the cup brownie, a peanut butter cup cookie and a sugar cookie cup cookie.
I found this recipe tonight.... made it... and then I had to share it immediately after. So rest assured there was no planning this post. I can't FAKE this kind of enthusiasm. Are you ready for the recipe yet? Here it is:
(Recipe quoted directly from No. 2 Pencil)Chocolate Chip Cookie in a CupAuthor: Melissa @ No. 2 PencilRecipe type: Microwave DessertPrep time:Cook time:Total time:Serves: 1Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup – the original microwave cookie recipeIngredients
- 1 Tablespoon Butter
- 1 Tablespoon Granulated White 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 or save for different recipe)
- Scant ¼ of All Purpose Flour (slightly less than ¼ of a cup)
- 2 heaping tablespoons of Semi Sweet Chocolate ChipsInstructions
- Start by melting your butter in the microwave. Butter should just be melted, not boiling.
- Add sugars, vanilla and salt. Stir to combine.
- Separate your egg and add the yolk only to your cup. Stir to combine.
- Add flour, then stir again. Measure a scant, slightly less than full, ¼ cup of all-purpose flour.
- Add the chocolate chips, and give a final stir. Now your mixture will look like cookie dough.
- Cook in microwave 40-60 seconds, start checking for doneness at 40 seconds. Mine takes 50 seconds. Do not cook past one minute, just like a regular cookie, this will continue cooking as it cools. If the cookie is dry or cake like, try less time.
- Serve warm.
I'll admit.... mug cakes are not my fav. They're a brilliant idea, but after they cool down they look, taste and feel like rubber, and there is absolutely nothing appetizing about that. The cookie however, is a spectacle of it's own. Forever soft-cookie-like, this cookie is the essence of what I've been looking for in quick desserts. Lets just say a dinner party Cassy-style is on the horizon.
