Ovenless baking

Posted on: March 17th, 2009 by admin 3 Comments

This is for you Craze and the many others out there that crave some home-made baked treats and don’t have an oven. Many people suggest buying toaster ovens etc, but sometimes you just have nothing but a stove and some pots and pans- or maybe just a microwave, so we’re going to do some recipes that you can make at home with limited equipment, because let’s face it, some of us are just your average broke renter trying to move on from 2 minute noodles (not that there isn’t a time and place for those.)

Lemon Sugar Cookies on the stove

2 1/4 cups flour (plain or whole wheat)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
2 tsp lemon juice

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cream the butter and sugar until smooth, then add the beaten egg to make a fluffy paste. Stir in the lemon juice. Then add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture gradually, beating continually until smooth.

Shape the dough into balls the size of walnuts and place the nuggets in a moderately hot, greased skillet or heavy based pan, leaving enough room to flatten them with the bottom of a floured glass. Cover the pan with a lid and bake the cookies 6-8 minutes on each side. When they’re crisp and golden, remove them to cool and repeat the process until all the dough is used. If you like, glaze the cookies while they’re hot with honey or other frosting. This recipe makes 3 dozen cookies.

This recipe is a variation on Hanukkah cookies or Soofganyot, fry pan cookies.
