Reviewer #1 – Sarah

Mission: To enjoy a homemade cookie without all the mess of making a batch.

We enjoyed the process of making this chocolate chip cookie – it was quick, easy, low-mess and in the end, tasted pretty darn good! It was definitely decadent and more of a desert than I needed, but both my kiddo and I enjoyed the end result. I added sea salt to the top of mine before cooking to add some savory taste to it.

Details:

  • Ingredients
  • Coffee Mug
  • Spoon
  • Kids

Tips & Tricks Learned:

Anyone can do this!

 

Pros:

A quick and easy desert option that everyone can enjoy.

Cons:

A little bit much in regards to taste and in my opinion, not as good as a “real” homemade batch of chocolate chip cookies. More on the “doughy” texture for those of you that like crunchy/crispy cookies.

Conclusion:

We really enjoyed making these – so quick and easy. And, we enjoyed eating them just as much!  They finished our evening off wonderfully.

Mission: The goal here, a fresh baked, delicious cookie in a matter of minutes.

 

Details:

Used my beloved WS Mini Spatulas.  Friggin’ love those things!

Tips & Tricks Learned:

I felt very proud of myself on this recipe, as for once, I didn’t screw anything up!

Pros:

Super easy and quick!

Cons:

REALLY filling…even for me!

Conclusion:

My husband’s quote, “Real cookies are better, but… it’s pretty good.”

My thoughts, “Really rich and decadent.  More of a cakey, chewy, texture.”

Perhaps it is the full egg yolk in each cookie, but this recipe is extremely filling, almost to the point of sickening if consumed entirely.  It’s a lot like a dessert that you would get at a restaurant; which is why I also feel that it is best enjoyed with a scoop of ice cream…and chocolate syrup.

Go big or go home, right?!

 

 

Reviewer #3 – Mandy

Mission:  As a single lady living alone, find an easy and yummy single-serving treat. (I just hate having to eat an entire batch of cookies myself… Ok, I love it!! But anyway.)

 

Details:

  • Followed the instructions as written. With recipes, I usually alter them a little bit, but I wanted to see if these were for real.

Tips & Tricks Learned:

Don’t use whole wheat flour. I tried it the next night just to see if I could go a little healthier and it was gritty and not so fantastic. Also, be careful with the coffee cup after it’s done cooking! That cup gets mighty hot!

Pros:

Easy, quick, and tasty! Immediate gratification is the best. And it filled my sweet craving for the night.

It’s also so great for one or two people in the home. Or, perfect for someone without a ton of time.

Cons:

Ok, so it’s not as good as the real thing. But still did the trick. And maybe not the healthiest treat.

Conclusion:

I probably won’t make them on a super regular basis but I definitely see myself making it on a cozy evening when I need a little comfort-style dessert for one!
