Can you bake cookies in a microwave?
My oven is broken and I have a lot of cookie dough. Made before the oven died. Can I bake cookies in the microwave?
I believe it's possible, but you wouldn't be able to do them all at the same time and they don't come out as good. Think of them more like a spongy mush, rather than a soft/crispy cookie.
Maybe if you have one of those crisper sheets? I do not think one can back in a microwave, but I have never tried to do so.
There is a cake mix at Trader Joe's for fat free brownies that uses just yogurt and the mix! You make one serving and put it in the microwave. (I use a tiny pyrex dish). It takes a few seconds and you have a little brownie to satisfy a chocolate craving any time of day! I never tried cookies,
BUT, you can bake cakes and cookies in an ELECTRIC ROASTING PAN! Who knew? We live in an RV and I don't like lighting the propane gas oven when my husband isn't here to save me in case something goes wrong. (Let's be honest here. I don't like to light it at all and make my husband do it.) So ANYWAY, I made batches of Pecan Fingers this Christmas that turned out perfectly. Growing up In Milwaukee, the Nesco electric roasting pan was so popular every one would just say, "Are you going to use the Nesco for your turkey?" So I do have an electric roasting pan in storage that I drag out when I want the equivalent of an oven. You can get an 18 qt. Nesco at Target for about $46 (I just looked it up). Cheers and best of luck, Billie
I made 'melting moments' which is a shortbread kind of mix and after I'd made them all into nice little shapes and pressed them down with a fork they looked really good. But then the oven wouldn't light, so I transferred them to the lid of a microwave casserole dish. They cooked but all ran into each other, so while still hot I cut them so they looked like shortbread. They were not very neat, but nice and crunchy. I think cakes work better in the microwave. Could you add some milk and an egg or two to your mixture and change it to being a cake? Or even in china cups (no gold or silver decorations) and you have individual cupcakes? Then it might work.
That all depends on the microwave oven you have. Many are now convection ovens, too.
Traditional microwave, probably not. have never come across a recipe to make them. I think it would just boil the batter.
I actually do this. No, you can't really cook them like baked cookies in a regular microwave. However, you can warm them up. Put one cookie on a plate and warm it for like 10 seconds. If you want them on a bigger scale then no can't happen. Be careful the plate will be very hot. you will not be able to pick the cookie up and dunk it but you can spoon it. lol. Then drink the milk after if you need milk.

Is it better to bake bread in the oven or in a bread maker?We've been given a bread maker but I'm not sure how it's meant to be better than using the oven. I guess it uses less energy. What do you think?
