Small Batch of Chewy Mini Muffin-Cookies

Total Time

What a great little, I mean little in quantity, sweet little treat. I adapted this from a One Cookie recipe here on Recipe Zaar. When I made, it made exact amount for two, or four really, but we, two of us, ate all in one night. A great recipe when you don't want to make too much, just right and super quick and simple! Enjoy!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix in a bowl butter, sugar, vanilla and water until blended.
  3. Stir in flour and salt until well blended.
  4. Stir in cinnamon, or any other flavorings, maybe some M&M's, chocolate chips, almond extract, nuts etc.
  5. Spray a mini muffin tin with butter flavored cooking spray, drop batter into molds.
  6. Bake in oven for 14 minutes, this is what I did and I got chewy centers. If you want harder, perhaps cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.
  7. Set on wire rack and carefully take mini muffins out using a butter knife and transfer to serving plate.
  8. This made 11 out of the 12 mini muffin molds for me!

These are really like little muffin cookies. I was amaized by the texture they had, soft on the inside but a very crisp golden brown on the outside, just like a cookie. I did have alot of trouble with them sticking to the pan, even with a spray coat, but they still tasted great.

Wow! You are good at adapting recipes! Not surprized that your friend says that you know the science of food (read your profile). I was interested in finding "small" anything on recipezaar, so I put "small" in the search box. I have had my mini muffin pans for about 2 years and can't find a single QUICK recipe that requires the use of the pans. Well... not any longer.. I will be using those mini muff pans a lot! My cookies don't look like the ones in the picture - those look smooth and shiny almost like toffee. I added 1/3 cup of chocolate muesli to mine. Yummy! Thanks so much
