Greetings All! I am looking for simple, microwave recipes for Cookies!
Our oven doesn't work and we can't afford to fix it or get another one, and I figured that surely there are some microwave recipes for cakes and cookies that I can handle. I'm far from being an expert. [/img]

I personally do not have a nuker, however, my friends to and they say that on most packaged cookie and cake mixes they have microwave instructions.
