It's hot. Why not bake?

It's 89 degrees outside and the temperatures are rising, with a predicted high of around 100 degrees.

So, of course, we decided to bake.

We spotted a story on Think Geek earlier this week and decided to give it a try. In their baking experiment, it took 5 hours for a pan of cookies to cook through. The result, crispy and totally edible cookies.

Ours went in the "oven" at 10:45 a.m. The car's thermometer read 86 degrees, but the air had been on for our trip to the grocery store.

 10:45 a.m.: Fresh from the package.

11:50 a.m.: They're getting goey.

12:45 p.m.: Two hours in and still just gooey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2:35 p.m.: DONE!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just to be sure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the verdict? Chewy, nicely crisp on the top and bottom and gooey inside. The perfect chocolate chip cookie.
