Over the weekend I bought some Nestle cookie dough, which was by one get one free at Publix by the way. Chocolate chip cookies are one of my most favorite things on earth. I have gone through phases, I’m not ashamed to say, where I will eat chocolate chip cookies every night. Love them! I actually bought these cookies just for experimental purposes if you can believe it. I honestly haven’t baked any of them except for the three I used in the experiment.
So, yesterday morning before I left for work, I put three of the unbaked chocolate chip cookies on my small Silpat and coordinating cookie sheet.
When I arrived at work, I placed the unbaked cookies on the dash of my car and headed in to the office. I wanted to see if they would bake in the heat of my car. I was pretty sure they would, but didn’t know if I would end up with hot dough or crispy cookies.
The cookies were placed on the dash around 7:25 (yes, I was running late – have been all week). I had an appointment yesterday afternoon; so, I left work around 2:40 and when I arrived at the car, the cookies were indeed baked through. The chocolate chips, were, naturally, gooey because of the heat, but the actual cookie was baked.
Pay no attention to my disgusting windsheild; it's the fault of my sappy Hackberry tree.
I took a bite out of one, and it was indeed delicious. I took a few photos, placed the cookies in the passenger seat and headed to my appointment. Every time I looked over and saw the cookies, it totally cracked me up.
Cookies - baked in the car! Yum!

I left the cookies in the passenger seat through my appointment and while I was at the gym. I got home for the day around 6:40 and the cookies had been in the car the whole time, still making me laugh. Generally speaking, these cookies were actually a little crisper than I like. I prefer a chewier, softer cookie, but they were still good. I actually brought the other two today to eat with my lunch. I’m sure I’ll share this story with the girls at lunch who will think I’m even crazier than they first thought. I wanted someone to take my picture with the cookies, but sadly, there was no one around.
So, that was my experiment yesterday. Not the most exciting thing in the world, but it provided me with a little humor on and off throughout the day; not to mention my car briefly smelled like fresh baked cookies. I’m thinking about doing an egg next or maybe something else. Any suggestions?
