Project for a Hot Summer Day: Baking Cookies in a Car

Last month during one of the summer heat waves, my kids and I tried to bake cookies in our car. Our experiment was only half successful. It was close to 100 degrees outside, but instead of parking the car in the sun for several hours and letting nature and car do its course, we had to do some errands. So we kept opening the "oven" and cooling it down with AC. In the end, we only had half baked cookies that we finished in a real oven. The car smelled great, though, and next time we'll get it right.

  1. Silly me...I didn't stop to realize how hot it would be in my car when I left four tomatoes in a bag in my car in 100 degree weather outside. By the end of the day when I returned to my car I literally had stewed tomato soup! your cookie idea!

  2. What a great idea! You can do your cooking or baking while running errands. Ooh, the possibilities for this multi-tasker! But I'll have to make it one long errand so I don't have to go in/out with AC like you, right?

  3. Half baked cookies are delicious!

  4. This is so funny! I'm totally trying it!

    I'll have to let my car sit in the sun and heat up first.

  5. What a great picture! My kids would love this. (Also you should package cookie dough and sell it as air freshener.)

  6. Great post today. An interesting read for any person who would agree with your views. Long may these posts continue.hvac repair in parker
