I was going to save this recipe for closer to the holidays, but I just can’t wait. I have tried on and off for months to perfect a Red Velvet Cookie in a Cup. It was never quite right, but inspiration struck and a secret ingredient gives this microwave cookie the signature red velvet color and flavor. Just like my other cookie in a cup recipes, you can have a warm, fresh, homemade cookie in just a few minutes.
Red Velvet Cookie in a Cup
created by Melissa at No. 2 Pencil
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Tablespoon Granulated White Sugar
1 Tablespoon of firmly packed Dark Brown Sugar
3 Drops of Vanilla Extract
Small Pinch of Kosher Salt
1 Egg Yolk (discard the egg white)
2 Tablespoons of flour
Start by melting your butter in the microwave. Add sugars, vanilla and salt. Stir to combine. Separate your egg and add the yolk only to your cup. Stir to combine. Add flour and cake mix, then stir again. Cook in microwave about 60 seconds. Let cool a minute or two. Cookie will be soft at first and will become chewier as it cools.
