That’s right, I did it! And you can too. It is unbelievably simple! I used our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (see below) to make the dough. Then just pop ‘em on a foil covered cookie sheet and put them in your car for a minimum of 3 hours in direct sunlight when the temps outside are at least 95+ the entire time. They were PERFECT!
Our Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar in the raw
2 tbsp water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
1 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (or “preheat your car” by putting outside in direct sunlight)
2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Mix in water, vanilla, and egg. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop cookies by heaping teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet.
3. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes (or bake in car for 3 hours). Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
