Chocolate Chip Cheater

I love baking.  I love the process of bringing ingredients together to create a sumptuous and satisfying treat for friends and family.  Every so often, I just want something quick, really quick and easy, really easy.  I know you can relate.  Well, to satisfy chocolate chip cookie cravings (especially when a certain husband regularly devours the frozen dough balls kept back for craving emergencies such as these), I found this little gem of a recipe, "Single Serving Deep Dish Cookie" on the blog Love From the Oven.  My boys are eating it right now.  Devouring it would be a more accurate description.  The smell amazing.  The are sooooo quick and soooo easy.  I really feel like I'm cheating.  I'm a chocolate chip cheater and I'm okay with that right now. 

Go ahead and give in to my peer pressure.  Be a chocolate chip cheater with me tonight!!

Chocolate Chip "Cheater" Cookie

2 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
scant 1/4 cup of flour (I used white whole wheat)
1/8 tsp. baking powder
dash of salt
chocolate chips to sprinkle on top

**You can do this all in one mug or mix it in a separate measuring cup and "bake" in individual ramekins for a special treat.
1.  Melt butter
2.  Mix in sugars & vanilla
3.  Mix in flour, baking powder and salt
a la mode version
4.  Sprinkle with desired amount of chocolate chips
5.  In cup or ramekin, cook in microwave for 40 - 60 seconds, depending on your microwave and on how done you like your cookies.  With no eggs in this recipe, you could eat it raw and not worry!
**Serve with ice cream on top if desired
