I made it with oatmeal instead of flour and an egg instead of the butter as a healthier alternative. Read More

Deep Dish Cookie in a Mug Haiku: "Five stars from daughter cute and easy recipe just a tad bit flawed." I thought the texture was much more like cake-in-a-mug but the taste was pretty good and it wasn't as messy as I expected (I thought it would stick to the mug and never come out.) However the dough was too crumbly and dry so I had to add a couple splashes of milk; actually dumped the dough out of the mug into a larger bowl to ensure it was all properly combined and not still so dry thereby defeating the simplicity of just preparing in the one mug. Also I know that microwave powers can vary considerably but I had to zap mine for more like 2 min. to not have it look so wet and raw. It popped out of the mug w/ a spoon (and had to be eaten w/ said spoon) and daughter loved it and wants to make it again; me not so much. Fun to experiment in the kitchen w/ her and like it said it tasted like a chocolate chip (oops I used mini choc chips) cookie so thanks for sharing your recipe!:-) Read More

As is this recipe makes no sense. There are no wet ingredients apart from 2 tablespoons of butter. Nothing to bind the rest. I ended up having to add a bunch of sour cream to make this into a real dough and it was quite good. Read More

I was bit skeptical but these actually came out great! I added a few drops of lime juice and a bit of peel instead of chocolate and scooped the dough onto a lightly greased ceramic plate instead- which worked wonders! They cooked perfectly in one minute. I made three cookies out of this recipe and they were crunchy on the outside and warm soft and not at all day in the middle. You have to be patient though and let them cool so they can actually acquire cookie texture. Over all I definitely recommend! Read More

It was too hard. Possibly too much butter. Read More

I prefer the texture to be a bit more "chewy". Overall pretty ok with a tall glass of milk! I was craving and this recipe was the easiest I could find. Read More

After I made it but before "baking" I was wondering why people were saying it was so dry because mine looked very moist. Once I put it in the microwave I finally understood. I put it in for a minute and when I took it out it was bubbling almost like boiling... but it was mostly solid. I took it out and let it set then started to eat it. It was a crumbley raw mess. If I had let it cook longer it would've definitely burned. I'm still baffled by how this weird textured 'thing' occurred. Read More
