Pinterest Challenge- Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug

We all have those days where we just NEED a cookie. For me, those days come more often than I'd like to admit. I've had this recipe from No. 2 Pencil saved for quite some time now on Pinterest, and I finally decided to go for it.

Ingredients

- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 3 drops of vanilla extract
- small pinch of Kosher salt
- 1 egg yolk
- slightly less than 1/4 cup of flour
- 1 1/2 tbsp. of chocolate chips

(moving from top left to right, up then down)

1. Melt the tablespoon of butter. I melted it for about 20 seconds.
2. Add the brown sugar.
3. Add the white sugar.
4. Add the vanilla.
5. Add the kosher salt.
6. Stir until all the ingredients are mixed.
7. Add the egg yolk.
8. Stir until all the ingredients are mixed.
9. Add the flour.
10. Stir until all the ingredients are mixed.
11. Add the chocolate chips and mix.
12. Microwave for 40-60 seconds. I cooked mine for 50 seconds.

My rationalization is that cookies are healthy because you always drink it with a glass of milk. To be honest, I was not a big fan of this recipe. It was rich, but the cookie itself was underwhelming. And I feel like it was too much work. It wasn't like my well used brownie in a mug. Good for a quick fix, but I'd rather make myself a whole batch!
