3 Christmas Mug Cookies

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

Since I’ve been called the queen of mug meals, I had to create 3 new Christmas Mug Cookies for the holiday season.  These are not just your average cookies, they are full of seasonal flavor and topped with festive decorations. And the best part is they can be made to share with someone special! I am so excited about these 3 Christmas Mug Cookies for 2!

We all love a classic gingerbread cookie, which is why I knew I had to make a Gingerbread Cookie in a Mug! This mug cookies is loaded with ground ginger and cinnamon and has all the zest of the Homemade Gingerbread Men we all know and love, without any of the fuss.

My Sugar Cookie in a Mug for 2 is absolutely adorable. This microwave cookie is the perfect hit of rich buttery sweetness. This sugar cookies is complete with white frosting and sprinkles and it tastes every bit as good as it looks.

My final Christmas Mug Cookie is a real winner as it combines two of my favorite sweet traditions, hot chocolate and cookies. If you like my fan-favorite 1 Minute Microwave Mug Brownie, you will love this one too.  This mug cookie starts with a rich chocolate cookie base topped off with mini marshmallows.  After a quick trip to the microwave, the marshmallows melt into the cookie, and something truly magical happens. This is a really yummy treat made for sharing!

    Size mug in ounces do I need to make the cookies?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 10, 2018 at 9:17 pm

      My mugs are around 6oz :). Like a medium sized mug.

      Gemma.

    Hi Gemma,
    I tried out your mug sugar cookie recipe today and it was amazing! The only problem was my mixture looked nothing like yours from the video you did with your husband. My mixture was liquidy but 2 more tablespoons of flour did the trick! My microwave also heats at 1200 watts so I microwaved my cookie for 50 seconds. When I had finished, I was craving for more… So, I double the recipe by 2 and made another but halved the recipe ( making 5) for my family (including me)! Thanks so much for the recipe as I dream to be a baker when I am older, like you. I am currently 9 years old. Thanks again for the recipe!
    Best of luck for the future, Najeeba

      Wow!
      Well done, you are officially a Bold Baker, even though you are just 9. I am happy to heat that you got to grips with this recipe, not sure why it needed more flour, but you thought it through, and sorted it out, well done,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma,

    I have been following your videos since today morning and have become a fan of yours baking style….I just have one question…I have a convection microwave at my home so in this do we need to preheat the oven first before baking anything or should I just use the micro mode and set the temperature and time as you advise??

    Looking forward to bake some of your easy and mouth watery recipes soon…thanks in advanced.

    Regards
    Piya

      Hi there,
      Good to have you with the Bold Baking community.
      A convection microwave is a great appliance, read your instruction book so that you get the best from it.
      (https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/gemmas-mug-meals/) all of these recipes are cooked using just the microwave. For this you will not need to preheat.
      For any other baking it is usually required, but as this is a small oven, it comes to temperature really quickly.
      I hope you enjoy the recipes here, have fun with them,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hey Gemma,
    is there a substitute for all purpose flour when making the mug sugar cookie like corn flour/starch ?
    I love your videos by the way 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on January 3, 2018 at 5:23 am

      Hi Valerie,
      Many thanks for your kind comments.
      (https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/category/recipes/dietary-preferences/gluten-free/) here you will find a few gluten free recipes. Cornflour is a great ingredient, but does not work so well as a flour. Oat flour, which you can make yourself may be a better alternative. What does work well is a good all purpose gluten free flour, which will be a blend of flours. Rice flours are commonly used, a mix of these, with xanthan gum, but there are so many, buckwheat, millet, sorgum etc. I am think you are gluten free, and maybe that is not so, but it is worth taking a look online for this, there is a blog ‘gluten free girl’ which I llke, but lots of others too.
      I hope this has been a help,
      Gemma 🙂

    hi gemma!
    when will you and when will not put baking soda and baking powder? thanks

    • Gemma Stafford on December 28, 2017 at 2:18 am

      Hi there,
      The purpose of baking powder in a bake is to ‘leaven’ or rise the bake, this has the effect of making a bake light and airy.
      Baking soda is used in much the same way, except that it is usually used with an acid ingredient, which then makes it work for leavening.
      The exception to this is honeycomb, when the heat activates the baking soda/bicarbonate of soda.
      So, there are horses for courses! From a science of baking perspective you may like to know that Bicarbonate of soda, is baking soda, which is a natural alkaline salt. Baking powder is comprised of bicarbonate of soda, and cream of tartar, which is an acid ingredient and a bi-product of the wine making industry, so, alkaline/acid is what gives a bake a rise, you need both.
      I hope this is of help to you,
      Gemma 🙂
      Almost all sponge type recipes require some raising agent, the exception here being brownies, which should be dense and rich.

    Dear Gemma,
    I just made Gingerbread Mug Cookies. I substituted condensed milk for egg yolk, and turned out just like my favorite Gingerbread cookies! I also tried Single -Serving Gingerbread Man. It was as good as Gingerbread Mug Cookies. Your mug cup recipes and single serving bigger bolder recipes are simply outstanding! Thank you so much for giving me joy of cooking for a small portion!!

    • Gemma Stafford on December 10, 2017 at 3:00 am

      Hi there,
      So good to have this great review of this recipe. It will really help other Bold Bakers, always great to have suggestions for egg free recipes,
      Gemma 🙂

    What can I use to substitute egg yolk.. Egg replacement is mentioned in ur chart.. Not the egg yolk substitute..

    • Gemma Stafford on December 8, 2017 at 4:25 am

      Hi there,
      For this type of recipe applesauce or Greek/strained yogurt, curd too, it depends on what you have available.
      Flax egg/Chia egg may also be a good choice, but think about what you usually use, that will be good too,
      Gemma 🙂
