Cookies on the Car Dashboard

Recently I needed a batch of cookies. However, the temperature outside was so extreme that the power company was turning off the electricity for periods of time. I had heard about cooking in the car when the temperature is 95 degrees or above, so I decided to try it. Here are the results. The texture was not as crisp as oven baked and they were not browned, but they were delicious. The recipe is: 1/2 cup butter creamed with 1/3 cup honey. Beat 2 eggs very well and add to butter mixture. Add 1 teaspoon almond flavoring. Mix in 2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder. Mix well and drop by teaspoons onto cookie sheet. Set on car dashboard for at least 1-2 hours. (Note: Make sure car is free of insects or pests and dashboard is clean.) Check after one hour for desired doneness. Moral of story is: If you can bake cookies in a car; what does the high heat do to children or pets that are left in hot vehicles?
