How hot does it have to be for cookies to bake in Arizona? To see what 114 degrees looks like, we put some cookie dough on a baking sheet, and threw that pan onto our patio in direct sunlight.
Here's what the cookies looked like on the patio and in position to start cooking (10:45am)
Here's another view as we set up our livestream at 10:45am
By 11:45 a.m. the cookies were as flat as pancakes!
Wow! Take a look at the cookies at 12:45 p.m.! The thermostat says it is 120 degrees!
The sun continued to "bake" the cookies on the ABC15 patio at 1:45 p.m.
They smell good! Here's how the cookies look at 2:45 p.m.
Our cookie pan registered 140 degrees Wednesday afternoon
The cookies start to harden by 3:45pm, but they are still far from "eatable" as we seen it.
