While stove-top cookies might not be suitable for every occasion, they come in handy if you don't have an oven at all, have a tiny apartment oven, or just can't fathom the idea of turning on the hot-box (also known as the oven) because the heat is unbearable.
"Baking" cookies on the stove top is similar to making pancakes. Melt butter in a skillet on low heat. Using your favorite cookie recipe, roll the dough in your hands, place it in the pan and flatten slightly with a spatula. Allow the cookies to cook for a couple of minutes on each side. Et voila, freshly pan-fried cookies are yours to enjoy.
