“Yesterday I was struck with a baking urge but didn't want lots of cake/cookies/muffins lying around the house, waiting to fatten me up. So I made just two cookies! The whole recipe can made in a teacup (I used a plastic one). Feel free to double ,triple , quadruple the recipe without changing the time and temperature - I didn't change it from the recipe I adapted this from, and that was for 100 cookies.”
2 mini cookies
