I’m all about my 5 minute (or less) microwave mug cakes and cookies. They are dangerously quick, easy to make and pretty tasty too. I also all about making a double batch of cookie dough, baking a few cookies and then prepping the rest of the dough into cookie size balls and freezing them. Then all I have to do is take them out of the freezer, thaw the dough a tiny bit and I’m ready with freshly baked cookies with no mess or hassle.
This evening I got the idea in my head to thaw one of the cookie dough balls a very tiny bit and eat it raw. I thawed it a bit too much, but I ate the gooey thing anyway. Yum! That put the idea in my head to see how these cookie balls, meant for the oven, would cook in the microwave… I just had to sacrifice two more cookie dough balls for this experiment. The first I cooked in the microwave for 30 seconds, but it over cooked and burned the bottom half of the cookie. Blech! Burnt cookie smell anyone? I only ate the top half, after it cooled down. The 2nd (really the 3rd, by now) cookie ball I zapped for 10 seconds and it was perfectly raw and gooey.
Lesson learned. I’ll either cook these in the oven or make sure I carefully thaw them only a tiny bit in the microwave.
