Toronto cop bakes cookies in hot car

Using the hashtag #cookiecar, Bangild began the test by leaving a tray of uncooked cookie dough in his car before work and provided updates throughout the day.

“The interior of the #cookiecar is current 27 degrees and the sun is barely up,” Bangild tweeted at 6:30 a.m.

By 5:23 p.m, the fruits of his labour had blossomed into scrumptious goodness.

“Ahhh. The smell of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. Temperature still too high to get a reading inside of the #cookiecar,” he tweeted.
