Cooking Tip of the Day

Don't put fresh cookies on top of a stove burner that is still on. Scientific tests have proven that this may cause said cookies to "smoke" and otherwise become filled with carcinogens and do not make for proper eating. If someone in the kitchen does say "why are the cookies smoking", it's usually not best to ignore that comment.

So, let me get this straight, you're saying turn the burners off, or are you saying put the cookies directly in your mouth from the oven to avoid this mishap?

Don't put cookies directly on a stove burner that is hot. You may put them to the side of the oven (a counter per-se), or even on top of an stove burner that is off, and let them cool to a desired temperature. I think the problem comes with putting them on a hot surface, does seem to cause them to burn.

Also, once you place cookies on the counter to cool, don't leave them alone with your dog or aardvark.

If you do burn them, keep in mind that chickens and rodents will eat burnt bakery items.

Sounds like a waste of a perfectly good cookie but a good way to make your burners smell better when you turn them on. I don't know if you've ever smelled a burner after accidentally hitting it with Formula 409, but I'd imagine that eau de carcinogenic cookie would be better.
