Bake cookies in the car???

Yes, you read correctly.

It is a well known fact that during hot summer days the temperatures inside a closed vehicle soars to well over 140 degrees!

This is why they tell you to never leave children or pets inside your car even with the windows cracked during the warm to hot months of spring,summer and in some places fall.

As an experiment to show just how hot a car can really get during the summer I dare you to bake cookies!

    prepare your favorite cookie recipe and place cookies on baking sheets as usual

  4. Step 4

    Take cookies on the baking sheets out to the car.

    Place baking sheets on top of your reflective windscreen shade making sure that your raising cookies do not touch your windshield or slid over the edges of the baking sheet.

    Close the car doors

  5. Step 5

    Check your cookies after an hour or so to see if they are done.

    When done remove from car and place the next sheet of cookies on the dash.

  6. Step 6

    Free cooking. what's better than that???
