Today I decided to try baking cookies in the new Breville oven.
Delicious! I am so happy with this oven!
After mixing up my dough, I decided caution was in order, and did a test bake with one cookie, using the included pizza pan, and the default cookie settings of 325 degrees, convection, for 11 minutes.
I wasn’t too happy with the result. The cookie wasn’t brown enough on top, and too brown on the bottom. I changed the temperature to 350 degrees, convection, which is what I bake them at in my regular oven, AND I put one of the oven racks on the bottom, with a cookie sheet on it to diffuse the heat from the bottom elements.
I cooked them an extra minute as well, so 12 minutes total, and they were perfect! I was able to fit nine cookies on the included pizza pan, no rotating was needed.
