Mug Cookie

2 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp white sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
4 tbsp all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tbsp chocolate chips

In a microwave safe mug (small is ok, it only puffs a little bit) melt the butter. Make sure you stop when it has just melted or it will be too hot and will melt your chocolate chips…if you are like me and make poor life choices then let it sit to cool almost to room temp before you do the rest.

Add the sugars and vanilla and stir well.

Add the flour baking powder and salt and stir well.

Add chocolate chips and stir gently until just incorporated.

Microwave for 60-90 seconds until the chocolate chips have melted and it is hot. You can do less or more depending on how you want it to taste. Less and it will be gooey and delicious, more and it will be firmer and still delicious.
