Last night, as I curled up on the couch to watch some TV, my stomach started to rumble, a tell tale sign that I need some food. But this was speical sort of a rumble, as it was begging for a certain sweet.
“Coooooooookies!” it screamed.
Now I’m a big believer in eating what you want, when you want it (in moderation of course). Cookies, however, aren’t something you can whip up with in a few seconds. At least, that’s what I thought.
After a little experimenting, and a little help from the internet, I managed to bake a sweet and satisfying cookie in under five minutes. Don’t believe me? Give it a go.
- 1/2 Tbsp. butter
- 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp. brow sugar, packed
- 1 dash of salt
- 3 drops of vanilla extract
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Melt butter in the microwave.
- Mix sugars, salt, and extract with the butter.
- Add egg yolk and beat well.
- Mix in flour.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
- Microwave for 45 – 60 seconds.
- Let cool (this is still a cookie after all) and enjoy!
Not only is this a simple recipe, but it’s one that you can easily change up. Try butterscotch chips instead of chocolate chips. Throw in some peanut butter. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Make cookie in a cup your way and let The Sweet Treat know how it turns out.
