Curling up on the couch to watch a chick flick and enjoy a quiet evening. Except one thing was missing. My sweet tooth was really wanting a chocolate chip cookie. Not having any freshly made cookies what is a girl to do? Make a Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug.
Single serving cookie, perfect for just little ole me. Pouring a glass of milk and gathering everything I needed to throw together this sweet cookie. Less than 5 minutes I was back curled on the couch, movie going, nice warm cookie in my mug and a glass of cold milk to wash it down. Life is good.
Melt butter in the microwave. Add sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and salt. Stir to combine.
Add egg yolk and stir to combine.
Add flour and mix until all combined. If the mixture is still to thin add one tablespoon of flour at a time. Mixture should be thick like cookie dough.
Add chocolate chips and finish mix everything together.
Flatten cookie dough with back of your spoon.
Microwave for 40 seconds at 70%
If the dough is still not done microwave for 10 seconds intervals until your cookie is cooked. Don’t over cook unless you want a hard and dry cookie.

This is a recipe that has been made over. Instead of using cocoa in these cookies I decided to try some Nutella I had sitting in the cupboard. My grandson loves Nutella anything. So Remington these cookies are for you. Make sure mom makes a batch of these yummy cookies. I know you will be in the kitchen helping along with your brother.
Here is a cookies recipe that makes a bunch of cookies. I’m talking like 12 dozen or more depending on how big you decide to make these cookies. Warning you will need a big bowl to mix everything.
If you don’t happen to need 12 dozen cookies all at once here is a tip for always have cookie dough on hand. Divide up your dough and place on wax paper. Roll into a long roll. Just like those store-bought cookie dough rolls. Roll the dough and warp the wax paper around the dough. Next cover with plastic wrap. I place several rolls into large freezer bags and store them in the freezer until it is time for cookies. You can do this with any cookie dough you make. This saves tons of time and money.
When ready to use just remove from freezer bag. Thaw, slice and bake. Great when you need to bake two dozen cookies for your childs class that they forgot to tell you about until 9:00 at night and they need them the next day. Not that this has ever happened.
