Economical Swedish Cookies

Here's a convenient, economical and tasty way to make small batches of cookies. Just spoon some cookie batter on a light bulb in your desk or table lamp, and turn on the light. Light bulb cookies are very popular in Sweden, especially during the long winter nights. Cooking time varies depending on wattage and type of dough. Allow 40 minutes for a 75-watt bulb, a little more for a 60-watt bulb. I find that cookies baked on light bulbs, especially at 60 watts, are much tastier than those baked in an oven.

Great one. I have to say this is right up there with the "Army Tent Pills".

By the way, isn't there a variation that allows you to cook brownies on fluorescent bulbs?

Lew's right. Ikea mass-produces their cookies on giant flourescent tubes in a factory. That's why their Sweedish cookies are missing part of the flavor spectrum.
