Cookies on the Stove Top

As you may realize, I will not have an oven nor  refrigeration in the truck. So I search out recipes for stove top cooking. Especially recipes that you don’t expect to be able to accomplish without an oven or refrigeration or even a cooler. I found this cookie recipe on a site called

How to Bake Cookies on the Stovetop

1. Prepare your desired cookie dough. For these cookies I made the Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies recipe from the back of the Nestle Chips bag, but I’ve shared more great recipes below!

2. Put a tiny shaving of butter in a non-stick skillet and warm over medium heat until the butter is melted. Swirl it to coat the bottom of the pan.

3. Roll a tablespoon full of dough in your hands and place it in the pan. Place about 4 or 5 balls in the pan at least 2-inches apart. Press the cookies down slightly with a spatula. Cover the pan with a lid and bake for about 5 minutes. Be careful to keep the heat low so the butter doesn’t burn off. If you need to lower the heat please do so. Then, lift the cover and flip the cookies over with a spatula. Bake again for another 5 minutes with the pan covered.

4. Remove the cookies and place them on a rack to cool slightly. Enjoy!

Now I have to assemble cookie recipes.
