If you’re one of the unfortunate souls that doesn’t have access to covered parking, you know just how stifling the heat inside a car can be after its been sitting in the Texas sun all day.

But with a little innovation you can turn that hotbox of a car into an actual oven.  Just perch a tray of raw cookies on your dashboard, and make all that trapped heat work for you. The best part is when you return to your car, you’ll a have a snack waiting for you, and your car will smell like fresh-baked cookies.

I’m told this will work with just about any type of raw dough, so you can whip up some cinnamon buns too if that’s more your taste.
