Sadly, our place in Kraków has no oven. I have been at more of a loss with cooking that I expected. The bright side is that I am learning new recipes (though I would really love an oven all the same. . .).
For this event I made sesame-butter and oatmeal no-bake cookies. These take a matter of minutes to create. While I have to admit that I would rather a just-baked cookie any day, for those of us without an oven these are a delicious option.
Sesame-Butter and Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies
In a medium sized pot bring to boil 1 1/2 C of sugar, 3 Tbl good cocoa powder, 1/2 C of milk, and 1/4 of butter. Cook 1 minute at a boil. It should bubble and froth.
Remove from the heat and immediately add 3 C of quick-cook oatmeal, 1/2 C of sesame-butter (or peanut-butter), 1 tsp vanilla, a dash of cinnamon, and 1/2 C of hazelnuts.
Drop by large spoonfuls onto wax or parchment paper. Let stand a half hour or until cool.
