Car-Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies

Okay, I live in Austin, TX and it's been over 100 degrees here for a few weeks. I found this recipe and I just might try it! You can see the whole recipe with photos at bakingbites.com. Too funny! The photo is of cooked cookies, they don't brown in the car ;)

Car-Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies
Place dough on a large sheet of wax paper and roll into a log approximately 11-inches long by 2.5-inches wide. Freeze for 2-3 hours, or overnight.

When ready to bake, park your car in the sun on a 100F+ day. Slice cookies into 1/4-inch thick slices and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Place baking sheet on car dashboard (with protective towel underneath) and bake for 2 1/2-3 hours, until done. Just put them on when you arrive at work, and by lunchtime simply open the car door to the smell of fresh, hot cookies for your co-workers!!! If you have a big dashboard (or a friend with another car), you can do two batches at once.
