|Coocakes? or Cupkies?|
That said, Debbie Koenig at Words to Eat By intrigued me with this recipe, Unbelievably Good Chocolate Chunk Cookies. I decided to give a solar twist to it and do something I've wanted to do for a very long time. If you've been following me, then you know that there are few and far between sweets here and I happen to be one of those people who don't particularly care for chocolate. But, I didn't want a day of cookie baking, so decided to try out my mini-muffin pans in the solar oven. Tada!
At 300F, the solar oven did two batches at just under twenty-five minutes, each. Frankly, the next time, I would check them just a hair sooner (like, twenty minutes) because the surround heat of the cups helped the cooking. Keeping the dough level to just under the top edge of a small ice-cream scooper, there was approximately a tablespoon of dough per cup or what would have been a 2.5" to 3" flat cookie. These Coocakes(?) or Cupkies(?) were crunchy on the outside and nice and soft on the inside -- and, fun. And, these are unbelievably good chocolate chip cookies! Have fun checking out the other fantastic recipes, too, and meet some new friends.
