Somebody forgot to turn off the sun last week.
For a solid 7 days straight, the thermometer registered over 100° outside. In the shade. At least half of those days were closer to 110°!
I know I live in California with warm weather and all… But if I wanted a scorching sunburn just from walking outside, I would’ve moved to Death Valley!
My oven earned a well-deserved break during that heat wave, but by Day 2, I already had baking withdrawals. I lasted all the way until Day 4 before my cookie cravings drove me crazy. I had to do something about them!
I nearly duct taped the oven door shut to prevent myself from impulsively indulging in any insane temptations, but an idea popped into my head first. A deliciously brilliant idea.
What if I mixed up the cookie dough—but didn’t bake it?
As long as I left out the raw eggs, I could eat it straight from the bowl. I’d still get my cookies without converting the house into a sauna!
And if you give a girl some cookie dough, she’s going to make some ___________ to go with it… (Stay tuned for the answer in my next post!)
