I hate to wash dishes. Even more though, I hate to wash muffin pans. I love to eat muffins. I just hate to wash the pans. I could use paper liners, but it seriously bothers me that so much of the muffin sticks to the paper, thus wasting a large portion of the muffin.
It's a lose-lose situation making muffins at home - either I have to scrub out each cramped little hole (several times because it never comes clean the first time) or I cry as I throw away half the muffin stuck to the paper.
Enter Mookies. Many, many months ago I decided to try making muffins on a cookie sheet. It worked. My kids loved it. Mostly because they thought I'd gone crazy and was feeding them cookies for breakfast. Clean up was a snap. So much so that I gave away all my muffin pans!
I've used a multitude of recipes and almost all of them work beautifully. If the batter looks really runny, I'll add a bit more flour.
We tried many names for this new creation. Cuffins. Cookins. Muffie. MuCookie. Mookies stuck.
