Foreman Grill and Otis Spunkmeyer Cookie Dough

Last fall my daughter's school sold Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough. It has 3 dozen delicious individual frozen cookies in each tub. The cookies are great to have on hand for last minute play dates, visitors, etc. You can take out as many as you want and bake them. The problem is I hate heating the oven up for just a few cookies. So today I experimented with my George Foreman Grill. And, it worked! The grill is the Next Generation model with removable plates. I put the baking plate on the bottom and the the steak plate on top.

I tried baking both cranberry oatmeal and double chocolate chunk and both turned it fine. The top was a little browner than when cooked in the oven but the taste was still great. Plus, it only took 10 minutes to bake, versus 18 minutes in the oven.

Grilled Otis Spunkmeyer Cookies

Preheat grill to medium.
Place frozen cookies on baking tray
Close top gently
Bake for 10 minutes
Remove cookies and let cool for 5 minutes.
Note: Cookies will be soft but will firm up when cooled.

Now that's called "Thinking outside the box!" ; P
Next time you grill some cookies, please save some pictures for us -- gotta see how these come out!
