Cookies In Cups

An hour after my nice healthy dinner tonight I realized I needed to have dessert.  I don't have any sweets in the house, so I ate a handful of raisins thinking that might satisfy my stomach.  It didn't, and I pulled out the ingredients for cookies.

However, in the interest of portion control I made TWO (one for me and one for Hubby Tony) and cooked them in coffee cups in the microwave.  Less than five minutes later my craving for sweets was satisfied.

(Sorry, no picture. we ate them too fast!)

  1. Mmmm! Warm cookies....sounds wonderful!

  2. Good for you with the portion control!

  3. You know, I've had a real hankering for sweet stuff lately. Don't know what it is, but I just can't seem to get enough of them! Might just have to try this recipe.

    1. I've been having a real issue with cravings, too. I wonder if it's a result of the cold weather.
