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?

This is the best mug cake I’ve ever had and I’ve tried many! Absolutely perfect. I stuck to the recipe and added 1/8 tsp vanilla. Other than that it’s the beatbox mug cake I’ve ever made. You won’t be disappointed!!

I was out of butter and used canola oil for this recipe. I DEFINITELY advice against using oil, not sure what happened, but it was a mugful of rock hard cookie crumbs. Ive made this several times before with butter, it’s fantastic.

Make this recipe, add one packet of swiss miss hot coco mix, and one table spoon of milk, microwave for one minute! Amazing chocolate treat if you have a sweet tooth like me! Or add coco mix to your desired chocolatey taste.

I was so glad I found this because I had been wanting sugar cookies but didn’t want to spend an hour baking cookies. I followed the recipe exacrly and I have a large mug and it only filled half so next time I will double it. (Go big or go home I always say). I always double the cooking time and use 50% power. It cooks things much more evenly. I have a 1000 watt microwave and I cooked it for 2-5 min on 50% and it was perfect. I’m thinking adding one whole egg and some baking power would… Read more »

I tried this out. Mine was spongey like another reviewer wrote, so I put it back in the microwave for a bit longer – that did the trick. This needs the sprinkles and possibly the icing. I find on its own its not as good as biting into an actual sugar cookie. It’s still interesting to try!
