The Chemistry of Cookies
This post is inspired by my brother, who recently has become quite interested in molecular gastronomy. Because the holiday season is coming up (read: lots and lots of cookies and baked treats), I just wanted to share this interesting little clip from TED ed about what actually goes on inside your oven. It covers the whole story, from the beginning of your cookie's journey to that irresistible freshly baked cookie smell.... this applies to your turkey too!
If you're brave enough, maybe you'll even trust your nose & the Maillard reaction instead of the oven timer.
