Need a Christmas pick me up? Try these Mug Cookies that takes only 1 minutes to cook in the microwave!!

Hi Bold Bakers!

It’s just not a Christmas celebration without some frosted sugar cookies! My Mug Sugar Cookies have all the ingredients of those sweet frosted sugar cookies, with out any of the fuss. Usually when making a traditional sugar cookie recipe you have to get out your electric mixer, mix up the cookie dough, allow it to chill in the fridge, then you can finally roll them out and bake them. After baking sugar cookies they have to cool in order to frost them.  Then you still have to decorate. Delicious, but a lot of trouble.

Imagine the same flavor and festive look made in minutes in a mug in the microwave. My Mug Sugar Cookies make this dream a reality! And you can even make one to share! Mix up a few simple ingredients in 2 mugs, microwave for just 1 minute each, and these cookies are ready for decorating! Talk about instant gratification! I cover my Mug Sugar Cookies with white frosting and tiny red and green sprinkles. They taste amazing and look adorable, what more could you want for a holiday treat?

OMGGG!! Gemma! We decided to try this as everything is still under lockdown and the kiddies are bored out of their minds…and they were AMAZING!!!! We could not get over how great it turned out…was a little apprehensive at first that it would taste like a sugar cookie. But WA-LAHHH!!! In fact, it was so good that my little one got up this morning and made one for herself after breakfast!! Thank you Gemma. We think your recipes are absolutely wonderful. Surviving the quarantine just a little better with your recipes! Stay well and safe. Blessings.

This is horrible. Does not taste like a cookie at all. Split recipe in half and omitted sprinkles but otherwise I followed recipe exactly. I am very disappointed. I do not mean to be biased but now your other mug cakes have a stained reputation. Will try another recipe though. 🙁

These are so fun to make. Thanks for giving a quick easy recipe that impresses friends when you pop them in the microwave.

I used this as a starting point to make a snickerdoodle cookie in a mug. I added a pinch of cream of tartar and baking powder and sprinkled the top with cinnamon and sugar on top. Didn’t really taste of snickerdoodle that much, but still all right.

Wow! I was super bored during lockdown, so I decided to try this recipe and was not disappointed! I have a question, though. Since I usually make this recipe for myself, can I put the other serving into the fridge and cook it the next day?

Mine tasted so good! It was a little dry but I think I just microwaved it for too long. I thought it wasn’t done since I saw something like wet in the corners and it turned out to be nothing.
