Can I double this recipe?

Yes. Simply double all ingredients and divide the chocolate chip cookie dough between 2 prepared microwave-safe mugs. Bake one mug at a time.

Can I microwave 2 mug cookies at a time?

No. Only place one mug in the microwave at time to ensure proper baking.

Why is my cookie dry?

All microwaves are different so the 1 minute bake time is approximate. If your cookie turned out dry, next time reduce the cook time by 15 seconds and check for doneness.

How do I know when the cookie is done?

The top of the chocolate chip cookie should be set, puffy, and a little wet – no longer raw and jiggling.

You’ll be amazed at the gooey, delicious perfection that comes out of just a few simple ingredients and 1 minute in a microwave! Homemade cookies have never been so easy!
