Though I’ve been eating raw cookie dough my entire life, recent concerns over contamination in flour (and perhaps reaching the wizened old age of 30) has made me a slightly more cautious lady, so this project seemed pretty reasonable (and very delicious).
Unfortunately, this was not a task that could be done in one bag. Flour needs to be heated to 160 degrees Fahrenheit to kill any nasty pathogens that may be lurking around and, as we know from various eggsperiments we’ve conducted before, eggs start cooking at temperatures lower than that (around 140 degrees Fahrenheit.) Since our goal here is delicious raw cookie dough, fit to be eaten in pajamas while watching crappy TV, not cookie dough-flavored scrambled eggs, I decided to break the process up into two parts.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
