Ok, I just can’t help myself. It’s another cookie in a cup recipe! This time, Sugar Cookie in a Cup. This one is so good. Try it out, along with Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup, and Peanut Butter Cookie in a Cup.
Start with a tablespoon of butter.
Heat in your microwave until melted, about 30 seconds.
Add two tablespoons of granulated white sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla and a pinch of kosher salt.
Add one egg yolk. Do not include the egg white, discard or save for a different recipe.
Stir in egg yolk.
Add three level tablespoons of all-purpose flour.
Stir in flour.
Sprinkle on pretty colored sugar, plain white sugar, or whatever you have handy. Microwave for about 45 seconds, depending on the strength of your microwave.
You just made a sugar cookie from scratch, in the microwave! Can you believe it?
