Single-Serve Cookie – A Singular Fail

Single-serve Microwave Cookie

I don’t know who these people are who just want to make ONE COOKIE at a time, do you? But this recipe for Single Serve Microwave Cookies by BoxOfPopTarts does look delicious, and I suppose I could fit several mug-fulls of batter in the microwave at once…

Except I’m going to learn from reader Kathryn’s mistakes, so I don’t end up with this:

Microwave cookie fail

Katheryn says:

I saw this cookie made in a microwave and wanted to make it for dessert. Well, I guess I didn’t measure it correctly and ended up with this. It doesn’t taste bad it just doesn’t taste… good?

“It doesn’t taste bad” isn’t exactly the best cookie review I’ve ever heard, though I guess it explains why the bowl is half empty. But who can blame her? A poorly measured cookie is way better than no cookie at all.

    I’ve made this recipe many times before and its worked out great every time. I originally found it on

    I ALSO did this one. I measured everything EXACTLY and it came out pretty similar. Also didn’t taste BAD, but definitely wasn’t GOOD. I added icecream to it, which redeemed it enough to make it enjoyable. But this pin is definitely fake.

    When I made this, it tasted oddly like metal. I make stuff in the cup I used all the same and it never tastes off, and I wasn’t taking off shavings of my fork either…

    I have made this a few times. I learned that aerating the flour and using a scant 1/4c makes a huge difference in the result..
