Single Serving Microwave Cookie

A really tasty treat for when you don’t have time or ingredients to make a bunch of cookies. This is something you really want to eat warm, with the chocolate still melty, maybe with a bit of vanilla ice cream on top. If you’re in Boston, maybe just don’t leave the house today, hang out and try making variations on microwave cookies instead?

IMG_5567Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/8 tablespoon vanilla
  • scant 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (4 tablespoons)
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon caramel bits
  • pinch sea salt

Put the butter in a mug or ramekin and microwave until melted, then whisk in the sugars and vanilla.

IMG_5561Add the flour and baking powder and stir until mixed.

IMG_5562Stir in the chocolate chips and caramel bits, then top with a light sprinkle of sea salt.

IMG_5563Microwave 40 seconds for a gooey-in-the-center cookie, or 60-70 seconds for a cooked cookie. There are a bunch of things that will impact how cooked yours gets, like how big your mug/ramekin is, how powerful your microwave is, and if you’re nuking a second one for someone else at the same time. Just play with it. I had a really big ramekin thing, so the dough was spread thinner than it would have been in a mug, and I did two at once, for a minute. I was pleased.

This may look a bit undercooked, but texture-wise it seemed cooked all the way through.

The flavor’s just right, the speed is there, this is a keeper!

    I wonder how this would work with a GF flour mix? I would try it, if only I had a microwave.
