This recipe came from a very special person - my grandma. She would say that she found the recipe inside her shoe. For a better taste put more butter on top of the cookie before putting in it in the microwave.

it's a good recipe! Although I did happen to look through the comments and found that instead of using a whole egg I should use only 1 egg white and add a dash of baking soda. So I did; but only cooked it for 90 seconds. And it tastes great! Afterwords I ask tested a bit of chocolate syrup and it added to the flavor. I highly suggest adding these changes! Read More

I made this recipe multiple times for 4 taste testers. The first time I made the recipe as written and cooked on high for 3 minutes. My second son ate it but it was a tad overcooked. Round 2 I added some vanilla and cooked on high for 2 minutes and it was perfectly cooked. A son 1 tried it and said it was weird with chief complaints about texture. He kept saying it was eggy but when asked said it didn't taste like eggs. I made a couple more for my husband and 3rd son to get their opinion. My youngest son did not like it at all. He only had a couple bites. My husband agreed with my oldest that although it tasted ok it had texture issues and was unlike other in a mug treats I have made him... he wasn't a fan of this one. I think adjusting the egg and using the yolk only may help but adjustments are needed to make this 4 or 5 stars. Read More

With changes, this is 4-5 stars. Use a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter. Skip the vanilla - it competes with the peanut butter for flavor, and is not necessary. Omit the egg and add a tablespoon of whole milk and a pinch (1/16th tsp) of baking powder. Use 1/4 cup of flour. Use a generous pinch of salt - too little salt and you won't taste the peanut butter as much. I also sprinkle some organic sugar on top before cooking, which adds a pleasant crunch to the top when it's done. Cooking time depends on your microwave power. At 1200 watts it's done in about 30-45 seconds. Err on the side of underdone. Read More

Had lack of taste and had major texture issues... I could feel the texture of airy scrambled eggs meets overcooked bread pudding... Read More

Based on reviews and baking experience I added a pinch of baking soda and a dash of vanilla extract and used only the egg white. I didn't taste the peanut butter at all and I used Skippy. So maybe add 1 1/4 tbsp. Of course I poured 1/2 the mixture in another mug because the recipe yields 2. If you microwave for about 1 minute and 20 seconds you have a great mug muffin but never a cookie. So change it to Mug Muffin and you've got a hit! Read More
