It's very easy to boil an egg, it says so in my Cooking, For Dummies book ;)

Leave it for at least 10 minutes after the water begins to boil not before!

I was told it depends on how quickly it drys. So if you scoop an egg out of the boiling water look how quickly the water evaporates off the shell.............although I could be completely wrong  ;)

That would make a good science project do an undercooked egg and a well cooked one but watch for the speed of evaporation and check it a couple of times for accuracy!

Well as I said I could well be wrong ;) I can boil an egg really easily, but that's probably because I forget about it and then remember 10 minutes later  ;)

ok so pretty quickly. and um... i wanna go live with karen now...

You can try and guess. You'll see when you first pull the egg out how fast the water evaporates, then when you do it again it should be quicker  :)

the coconut would be an interesting twist Bored Chemist...hmmm, may try that...

EASY TO MAKE SNICKERDOODLES   

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup or 2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup or 4 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking power
4 tablespoons of cinnamon
4 tablespoons of sugar
(optional thanks to Bored Chemist's add shreaded coconut and a dash of coconut milk and use the rest in Pina Colada mix! :-)

1. Cream the shortening, sugar and egg with electric mixer until smooth.
2. Sift flour, onto a wax paper, about 1 1/2 cup.

3. Measure flour, salt, and baking powder into sifter and sift over a small bowl.

4. Add the sifted ingrediennts into the sugar and shortening and egg mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon.

5. Add vanilla and stir again.

6. Dough should be soft and easy to handle. Add a little more flour (about a tabelspoon or so) if dough sticks to your hands.

7. Preheat oven to 400F. Set out cookies sheets lined with foil 8 combine suger and cinnamon into a small bowl and set out side

9. Roll pieces of dough into the size of a small jawbreaker. Roll the ball into the sugar cinnamon mixture. Place on a foil line cookie sheet, three across and five down. Place the rack in the middle of the oven.

10. Bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly brown. Cookies will puff up and then will flatten down and have a crispy top.

11. Let the cookies cool on the rack
