I am in love with the single serving cookies I’ve been creating, especially the birthday cake cookie.

This time though, I decided to play around with a microwave version.

You can make the dough in about 2-3 minutes. Then it cooks in the microwave in just 50 seconds. And it’s ready!

Because we’re working with a microwave, there are certain sacrifices made. It doesn’t come out as perfectly round, and it doesn’t brown or get crispy around the edges like the oven version, but it’s fast and easy and still yummy. The cookie comes out soft and sugary and full of delicious Spring and Easter colored sprinkles.

You can also cook this in a mug, and make it a mug cake cookie, but I prefer mixing the ingredients in a mug and then cooking it on parchment paper so that you can get the traditional cookie shape.

Microwave Sprinkles Sugar Cookie

Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 4 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1

This sugar cookie for one takes less than five minutes to make!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp granulated white sugar
  • 1 tbsp whisked egg
  • 1 tbsp sprinkles

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients except sprinkles into a mug or small bowl, mixing with a small whisk until a smooth dough forms. Stir in half of the sprinkles.

  2. Line a medium-sized microwave-safe plate with parchment paper. Scrape out dough into the middle of the parchment paper. Shape dough to resemble a cookie shape (like a thick round disc). 

  3. Add remaining sprinkles to surface of the cookie. Microwave for approximately 50 seconds. You cookie might be done slightly sooner, but I don't recommend more than 50 seconds as it will turn the cookie hard and brittle. Cookie is best consumed right away.

  1. Oh this is so cute! My daughter would love making this – she likes funfetti, sprinkles, etc.

  2. I loved it, but mine didn’t rise.

  3. This recipe is a winner. Thanks for sharing it.

  4. If you’re making it a mug cake cookie should it also be in the microwave for 50 seconds?

  5. Can you also put them in the oven to make them fresh for a longer while? And if you can should you put something else in them?

    • I’m not quite sure I understand your question. Are you asking if you can bake the cookie instead of cooking it in the microwave?

  6. Do you have to add the sprinkles

  7. I loved this! Everything was perfect other than I had to bake mine in the microwave for about a minute and 15 seconds and then had to put it in the fridge for a couple minutes, but it was still great! Thanks!

  8. Can you put it in the microwave without parchment paper?

  9. Can you chill the dough(so it’s easy to shape and cut) before microwaving it?

  10. can i leave it overnight!!
