[Alice talking]: Folks, last night I made 3 different cookies doughs (chocolate chip, oatmeal and walnut, and peanut butter) and baked them all in 36 minutes!
More math: If each dozen takes about 8 minutes to bake individually, that's around 24 minutes of baking per batch of dough. So for 3 batches of dough (the 9 dozen cookies), that equals 1 hour and 12 minutes (72 minutes) to bake all three batches.
PLUS, let's factor in the clean up--I did this all using ONE bowl. I didn't even need to wash it, or the mixing beaters, between batches because they all called for brown sugar, butter, and vanilla. There was no distinct flavor change to merit washing my tools between batches.
So that's the ONE-BATCH cooking baking update. Have a blast with this idea and please report back with YOUR tips and successes. We're all in this together as together we make family dinner hour possible!
