AUSTIN (KXAN) — A KXAN viewer said she conducted an experiment this week just to see how hot it really was in Austin.
Jennifer Grube, a resident in northwest Austin, said it was hot enough to bake cookies on her car’s dashboard.
“Started at 12:30 pm. After an hour I flattened them with the back of a spoon, by 3:45 the flattened cookies had baked edges but raw centers. By 4:45 pm they were done and crispy,” Grube said in a ReportIt sent to KXAN.
She also said the ones that were thicker to start with were easier to remove from the baking pan than the thinner ones.
