Chocolate Chip Cookies Baked in the Sun Oven




Cookies are my favorite baked good.  So it is one of the first things I tried to bake in the Sun Oven.  It turned out to be a little tricky because: 
  • The Sun Oven will not hold a traditional sized cookie sheet and therefore you are limited to baking 6 cookies at a time.  This can be overcome by stacking the cookie sheets or by using the dehydrating kit to stack four pans at a time.  Both options are a little tricky.
  • When baking more than one pan of cookies at a time the pans need to be rotated half way through to ensure all the cookies get cooked.



To stack the cookie sheets. 

Place one cookie sheet in the bottom of the sun oven (self-leveler removed).  Rotate the next pan 90 degrees and place on top.  Rotate cookies half way through baking time, moving the bottom pan to the top.

To stack cookie sheets on the Dehydrating Kit racks.
If you have the dehydrating kit for you sun oven.  Get the racks ready.  When using the dehydrating racks you can bake 4 pans of cookies at a time.  The racks are a tight fit in the sun oven.  Be careful not to burn yourself. 

Working quickly place one cookie sheet in the sun oven, place a dehydrating rack on top of it.  Place another cookie sheet on top of the rack, repeat until full (3 dehydrating racks and 4 cookie sheets).  Close the sun oven and bake at 350 degrees.

After 6 minutes rotate cookie sheets, moving the bottom cookies sheet to the top and moving everything down one level.  Repeat every 6 minutes until all the cookies are finished baking, about 12 minutes.


Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies can be made in a traditional oven or in a sun oven. 
printable recipe

Sun Oven Directions:
If using the dehydrating racks or if stacking pans then remove the self-leveler tray from your sun oven.

Preheat Sun Oven to 350 degrees. 
While oven is preheating, cream together butter, sugars, baking soda and eggs.  Add vanilla and mix well.  Add flour and mix well.  Roll into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet, be sure to use the size the fits in your sun oven.  I find I can get 6 cookies per sheet. 

To stack the cookie sheets.

I've never heard of Shelf Reliance before. It's given me a lot to read and ponder this morning. I also like the idea of the solar oven.
