Mug Sugar Cookies for Two

Save Recipe

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 sugar cookies 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?

    Hello, I do not own a microwave but love the idea of mug cakes, is there any way I could do this in my oven? Thanks!

    • Gemma Stafford on December 16, 2017 at 6:58 am

      Hi Annalena,
      Yes! you can bake the cake/cookie types of mug recipes in a muffin tray, in your oven, at 180C/350F for about 15 mins.
      Do this when you are using the oven for another dish, to avoid waste.
      Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

    I made an individual one tonight. It was dry. I used the yolk from a “large” egg and 1T of real butter. What size egg do you use in your recipe? Any suggestions?

    • Gemma Stafford on December 10, 2017 at 3:09 am

      Hi there,
      I use a large egg too. This should not have been dry.
      This is the recipe for two, did you divide all of the ingredients? A touch more butter perhaps, weigh it if you have a scales, tablespoon measurements can be arbitrary!
      2 tablespoon (1oz/30g) butter
      4 tablespoons sugar
      1 pinch salt
      2 egg yolks
      6 tablespoons all purpose flour
      1 teaspoon sprinkles
      I am sorry to hear that you had a problem with this, I hope you will try again,
      Gemma 🙂

    The sugar cookie one is really good! I added chocolate chips to mine and with ice cream.

    Can I substitute margarine for butter?
    Thank you 💗

    • Gemma Stafford on December 8, 2017 at 4:23 am

      Hi there,
      If you use margarine use one designed for baking. Tubs are often designed for spreading, and a re a little too soft. There are many good ones on the market, depending on where you live. It is usually in a block shape.
      Happy baking,
      Gemma 🙂
