There are lots of no-bake cookie recipes out there, too.  So you could look into those.  But a toaster oven would work, too.  I made cookies in mine in university all the time.  And was the most popular one on the floor for an hour or two.

You could look into recipes that you could fry like a pancake, too.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

ahhh, that's actually EASIER. 
I'll still say toaster ovens, because, they're genius for this stuff.  (and they're cheap.  Well, they're not ALL cheap--they can cost hundreds.  But a basic one is about $40 and other than the one I got as a wedding gift,mine all came from charity shops--this site does excellent recommendations, but, unfortunately, on this one, they run expensive:  http://thesweethome.com/reviews/the-best-toaster-oven/)

I have made these:  http://www.number-2-pencil.com/2012/03/06/chocolate-chip-cookie-in-cup/
in a microwave and they are awesomesauce.
Make in a cup.  Throw in ice cream when done.  Heaven.

Oh, cookie biscuits. Much easier.

Here's some directions I used for girls out meeting. We made chocolate chip oatmeal ones.

Thank you! It's great to hear that someone has used a recipe--I feel much more confident now. I'll be baking tomorrow and I'll post an update in case anyone else comes along who wants an answer to the same question.

dawbs--I think I love you. Holy cows on pogo sticks that is one scrumptious bit of comestible!

Hmmmmm

Hope they turn out. We did cook on a low heat instead of medium as suggested in the article. If you want, you can try it out with refrigerated dough first.

I just realised I never posted how it went. Sorry!

I have a humongous big flat saucepan thing which worked very well. I did seven biscuits at a time using a generic packet mix. And it was so easy! If I had an oven installed, I think I'd still prefer to use the stove. The hardest part was stopping them from cooking too quickly (I prefer them soft and gooey). It was similar to making pancakes, and was just as fast. I didn't time it, but it definitely wasn't even five minutes.

The only hard part was keeping the heat on super low so they didn't go too crunchy on the outside too quickly. I learnt that after the first batch which were yummy but too crispy. The second batch was much gooier.

Thanks again everyone for the advice!
