Texas is no stranger to sweltering levels of heat. So much so, the National Weather Service decided to test the temperature outside in an interesting way. Rather than using complex tools of science, they decided to measure Texas’ convection oven-heat by baking a batch of cookies.
The lighthearted approach was captured and shared to Facebook. In the video, the test takes place during a 105 degrees Fahrenheit scorcher of a day. Sitting in the car, the scientist was able to mostly cook a tray of cookies sitting on the dashboard, which reached nearly 200 degrees Fahrenheit under the sun’s heat.
While a cool experiment, unfortunately the post didn’t include any pictures of the cookies being eaten. We’ll just have to imagine what sunbaked chocolate chip cookies taste like — probably amazing. On another note, the caption in the post ended with something worth keeping in mind: Don’t lock away items, pets, or yourself in a car on 105 degree days.
