Two Sisters Times Two, Serial #36 and Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookie

Posted on

Hey, did your mom ever yell at you for eating the chocolate-chip cookie dough because it had raw egg in it and might make you sick? Yeah, you know what I’m talking about! But you snuck a few spoonfuls from each batch while she wasn’t looking and never got sick once except that one time you barfed at school but I think that was from the manicotti they served for lunch in the cafeteria. There was a line of kids throwing up that day. Boy, did it stink. Haven’t been able to eat manicotti since.

But I started out talking about the guilty pleasure of eating uncooked chocolate-chip cookie dough. It’s so decadent and naughty and half the fun is knowing you shouldn’t be doing it. But then there is the slight risk of picking up a case of food poisoning.

So Reading and Recipes has the perfect answer: Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookie! This cookie is gooey and dense and full of all those wonderful cookie dough flavors and textures, but it is sufficiently heated to make it safe to eat. Furthermore, you can customize the cooking time to suit your personal preference. The only hard part is waiting a few minutes for it to cool down before indulging yourself–don’t want to trade the risk of illness for burning the top of your mouth. Save that rare pleasure for your next slice of too hot pizza!

Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookie

1 Tablespoon unsalted butter

1 Tablespoon brown sugar

2 teaspoons granulated sugar

1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

pinch of salt

1 egg yolk

3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 Tablespoons chocolate chips

Add the butter to a microwave safe mug or bowl. Microwave the butter on medium power until it is completely melted, but not boiling. Remove the butter from the microwave and add the brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix ingredients together until completely combined. Using a fork, whisk the egg yolk into the batter. Slowly stir in the flour and mix until just combined. Scrap sides of mug if needed. The batter should resemble cookie dough at this point. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Place mug back into the microwave. Microwave the cookie on high for 40 seconds. Check to see if the cookie is done. If not, microwave an additional 10-20 seconds. Do not exceed 60 seconds. Remove the cookie from the microwave and allow to cool slightly before eating.

Makes 1 cookie.
