Microwave Cookie

The moment I made the emergency brownie so well in the microwave, I was curious to see if I can do anything else the same way. I googled and found that there were plenty of recipes. So what see here today is the cookie (single portion) made in my Samsung microwave.

I've always loved cookies and when Cookieman opened a store in Madras, I used to buy them by the tins (not to mention the tins were keepers :D)

Of course the microwave cookie is not going to be as crusty as the oven baked cookie, but this will do. To make just one piece, to satisfy my temporary craving, this one minute cookie is just about enough.


Butter - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 2.5 tsp (The original recipe used 1 tsp brown sugar + 1.5 tsp regular sugar)
All purpose flour - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1 pinch
Baking powder - 1 pinch
Choc chips
Egg - 1 tsp
Vanilla essence - just a drop


Soften the butter and mix the sugar in the cup, until light & fluffy. Add the drop of vanilla essence and mix well. Next add the egg. Add the flour, salt, baking powder and mix well. Finally add the chocolate chips. Dollop this to the center of the plate and microwave on high for 40 seconds. Increase by 5 secs if you feel it's not done. :-)

And with the remaining egg, I added salt, some herbs and pepper, poured it into a microwave dish and made a quick omelette :-)
