The oven we had on our dorm floor tended to burn the bottom of anything baked.

Now though, I have an oven that works normally, which definitely makes baking more possible.
Here's a recipe that I highly recommend, particularly if you're someone who has to be a bit more creative with your food choices. These are almond flour snickerdoodles, which just melt in your mouth. Click HERE for the recipe.
Let me know what you think of them if you try them out! I kept a few out on the first day, and then froze the rest. They make a great to-go snack - just pop them out of the freezer and in no time they're perfectly soft enough to enjoy.
