NO… WAY…

 

Microwave cookies… WHAT?!

I had some leftover pre-cut chocolate sugar cookie dough from Mya’s Halloween goodie bags for her classmates. There were only 5 pieces in the fridge that didn’t make it in the oven (didn’t want to waste energy for 5 cookies). So in desperation for a cookie, I threw one in the microwave oven on top of parchment paper for 45 seconds on high. I stopped the microwave when I started smelling something burning. I pulled out the cookie and sure enough, the center was a bit charred but the outside was perfect. So I ate it anyway.

I experimented again (in the name of science, of course). I threw another in the microwave for 45 seconds at 70% power. I had to stop it after 40 seconds because I had a feeling that it might burn again. It didn’t burn, but it did cook a bit more in the center than on the outside. I ate that one as well.

My last attmept (remember, this is for science – not hunger), I threw another one in at 40 seconds, 60% power. I think it came out just right. Just like regular sugar cookies, I had to let it cool off before it hardened. It tasted just fine.

I think I may have to experiment more with microwaving cookie dough. It might be a nice trick to have when I need a cookie. I seem to always have cookie dough in the fridge or freezer.

What happened to the other 2 pieces of cookie dough? Leave it to Thom to eat it raw.
