Gorgeous Day for Baking Cookies

“Mama, can we bake cookies?”

Because I suspected that the oven is still too wet to retain enough heat, we put the cookie tray right on the coals (which is cheating, really).

The thermometer went up to 400 and then freaked out.

Cookies came out a little burned but nice and smoky!

Steam rising off the oven.

As an experiment, after that first batch I raked out the coals and we put in another tray of cookies. Like I thought, the temperature quickly plummeted to 250 F. That means we don’t have enough heat retention yet.  I got the coals out of the bucket and put them back in, then flipped the cookies over, like pancakes. Yum!
