Quick Fix: Cookie in a Cup

14 Jun

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.

Cookie In a Cup


  • 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


  1. Melt butter in the microwave.
  2. Mix sugars, salt, and extract with the butter.
  3. Add egg yolk and beat well.
  4. Mix in flour.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips.
  6. Microwave for 45 – 60 seconds.
  7. 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.
