Snickerdoodle Mug Cookie

Since my junior year of college, I have not lived with a roommate. That’s four years and counting. At this point, I don’t think I will have a roommate until someone puts a ring on it. I like not having to share a bathroom or worry about someone else’s dirty clothes on the floor. For my future husband, I will make an exception, but seeing as I am chronically single as of late, it looks like I will be going stag to parties and cooking for one in the kitchen.

My solo status means I don’t have a consistent crowd to share my baked treats with, so desserts in mugs have become my favorite thing. First, it’s great portion control. Second, not a ton of leftovers that go to waste. This Snickerdoodle Mug Cookie is perfect for anyone who wants a small treat that is “spicier” than a sugar cookie but not as decadent as a molten chocolate lava cake. This recipe produces a Snickerdoodle Cookie that is super soft and gooey. The cinnamon sugar melts perfectly for a boost of flavor. The dessert is a bit heavy, so leave plenty of room after dinner!

Snickerdoodle Mug Cookie

  • Servings: 1
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup milk, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For layering/topping:

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. In a small bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon until completely combined. Stir in milk, butter, and vanilla until batter is smooth. Scoop in a third of the batter into a large coffee mug, then sprinkle a small spoonful of cinnamon sugar. Alternate layers of batter and cinnamon sugar, ending with cinnamon sugar.
  2. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Let cool for a bit until eating.

My microwave is a weak, 700 watt microwave, so my Snickerdoodle Mug Cookie took longer than normal.
