- A cookie sheet
- Cookie dough
- A plastic or silicone spatula
- Plastic wrap
- A car
- A thermometer that reads temperatures up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit
- A potholder or towel
- An eggless dough recipe
- Step 1: Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. If you're using premade cookie dough, cut it into ¼-inch thick slices and place them on the sheet about 2 inches apart. If using homemade dough, roll pieces into 1-inch balls and drop them onto the cookie sheet. Warning: Because of the low baking temperature, the eggs in the cookie dough may not cook completely. To reduce your risk of salmonella infection, use dough with pasteurized egg whites, or search online for eggless dough recipes.
- Step 2: Use a spatula to flatten the cookies slightly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until you're ready to hit the road.
- Step 3: Find a very sunny spot to park your car in during the hottest part of the day, which is usually from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. during the summer. Let it sit in the sun for at least 15 minutes. Tip: The temperature outside must be at least 95 degrees Fahrenheit in order for the inside of the car's temperature to bake the cookies.
- Step 4: Place the cookie sheet on the dashboard, and put a thermometer next to it so you can look through the windshield to check your car's temperature. The inside of the car should reach at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Tip: Set the cookie sheet on a potholder or towel to prevent damage to the dashboard.
- Step 5: You must wait anywhere from two to three and a half hours for your cookies to cook completely. Don't open the car doors until at least two hours have passed. You don't want any heat to escape.
- Step 6: After two hours have passed, or when the cookies look baked, open the door to check on them. If they stick to the sheet when you try to lift them with a spatula, they're not done yet. Let them cook for another 20 minutes or so. If they come up easily, the edges are firm and the center is no longer gooey, they're done! Tip: The finished cookies will be paler than those baked in a conventional oven at a higher temperature.
- Step 7: Carefully remove the cookies from the car, & enjoy!
- Fact: In the 1930s, Ruth Graves Wakefield accidentally invented chocolate chips at the Toll House Inn, located in Whitman, Mass.
Frying an egg using a sidewalkEdit
If you're looking for something to do, this method of egg frying will make a science expirement out of the activity.
- Aluminum foil
- A mirror or magnifying glass
- A very, very hot sidewalk
- Butter or oil
- Salt and pepper:
- Step 1: The easiest—and most sanitary—way to fry an egg on the sidewalk is to use a piece of aluminum foil. Take a pan-size piece of foil and bend the edges up, so the raw egg doesn't slide onto the pavement.
- Step 2: Crack an egg or two onto the foil. The sun will reflect off the surface and cook your eggs. Tip: If you intend to eat these eggs, you might want to use some butter or oil on the tinfoil so it doesn't stick—and season your eggs with some salt and pepper.
- Step 3: The temperature of the sidewalk needs to reach at least 158° Fahrenheit to turn a raw egg solid. Sorry, a light colored sidewalk on it's own won't do the trick. You'll need to cheat just a little.
- Step 4: To speed up the process, use a magnifying glass or mirror to focus the suns rays onto the foil. Now you're cooking!
- Step 5: After your egg is cooked, tell everyone that it was so hot outside that you were able to fry an egg on the sidewalk. Then watch their reactions.
- Fact: Every Fourth of July, Oatman, Arizona, has a solar egg-frying contest.

Remember Ecto-cooler? Well its back!(you just have to make it yourself)
- 2-quart line of Orange Kool Aid
- 1-quart line Countrytime Lemonade (Reg or Pink)
- 3/4 Cup Orange Juice (No Pulp)
- 3/4 Cup Tangerine Juice
- 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
- Green food coloring/Red & blue food coloring
- 1) Using a one gallon container, pour in orange juice and tangerine juice.
- 2) Next, pour in the Orange Kool Aid and Countrytime Lemonade mix. Stir. (Note: According to GBCD, “the lemonade is used to make the mixture slightly more bitter to give it the zing the original Ecto-Cooler had. You may have to adjust to get it to your taste.”)
- 3) Add water to the gallon marker on container and add sugar. Stir until dissolved.
- 4) Finally, add food coloring. It could be green or a mixture of red & blue.
- 1. Get a pie. Any 8-inch pie will do. Store bought, from the bakery…no matter, the Piecaken does not discriminate.
- 2. Make cake batter. It can be from scratch, it can be from a box.
- 3. Prep your cake pans (two 8″ rounds or one 9″ spring-form pan or sixteen cupcake liners) by greasing and flour them.
- 4. Place a small amount of batter in the bottom of the pans (1 cup for baking pans, 2 tablespoons of batter for cupcake liners)
- 5. Here comes the pie! I would divide an 8″ pie in half and place each of the halves into both cake pans. For the cupcakes, I used a cookie scoop full of pie for each. If you center the pie, it helps with testing for done-ness. I used a toothpick on the side of the cupcakes.
- 6. Pour remaining cake batter to the 3/4 full mark on cake pans and cupcake liners. Take care not to overfill. The cake batter should rise while baking. Over-filling will create an irritating mess in your oven!
- 7. Bake cake according to recipe.
- 8. Frost Piecaken after it’s completely cooled. Chances are you will have already eaten a few by the time you get to this step!
This recipe is great for those who want something sweet.

- An 8-ounce glass
- 3 oz. lemon-lime soda
- 3 oz. ginger ale
- 2 to 3 tsp. grenadine syrup
- A stirrer
- A straw
- Maraschino cherries
- Fill the beverage glass with either crushed or cubed ice, depending on your preference.
- Next, pour the soda and ginger ale into the glass, leaving some room at the top.
- You can mix a simpler variety of this drink by doubling the lemon-lime soda content and skipping the ginger ale.
- Add the grenadine, stirring well to disperse the syrup evenly.
- If you stir too forcefully, you’ll make the soda foamy and increase the amount of melted ice. Instead, stir slowly and smoothly.
- Garnish with 1 or 2 (or 10!) maraschino cherries and serve with a straw. You might consider extra cherries to celebrate a child’s accomplishment!
