Texas Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie

Ta dah! Here is the finished product. It took 4 hours of dashboard baking, instead of the 2.5 to 3 hours as suggested. I think that was because ours cookies were big. (We are in Texas after all where everything is bigger.) The only negative I found was they didn't really brown. But they were crispy, fully cooked, yummy and gooey. What is the moral of the story? Don't leave your Chanel lipstick or labrador in the car, but feel free to bake cookies in it....oh, and ask your City Council Members, County Commissioners, Governor, and President for more tree shaded sidewalks.

Heat Index

I read an article last night about baking chocolate chip cookies in your car when outside temperatures are above 100. Well, shoot, I thought. My black car tells me it is 107 when I pull out of downtown Round Rock at the end of the day. So, we are baking chocolate chip cookies in my car this afternoon! I put them in at noon and they should be ready in 3 hours. Come on by 102 E. Main Street in Round Rock after 3:00 for a taste test. Talk about passive energy use. Who needs solar panels? Wind farms, schwind farms.
