Oven Mystery – SOLVED!

We tested the oven last night. It turns out that I had never noticed a problem before because if you set it to 350, it stays pretty much at 350. Most cookies and other items are backed in that range, so 350 is safe. No burnt goodies coming out of the oven.

On the other hand, if you set it for 400, you’re screwed. It climbs and climbs until it reaches great temps close to 500 degrees. It’s like the home for the Heat Miser in there. And my poor fragile spritz cookies were just no match for that kind of heat.

Last night we made a different cookie recipe – the spritz cookie that kick ass – and baked them at 375. Viola! No burnt cookies. And they taste sooooooooooo good.

Yeah! Mystery solved! I don’t have to go back to Easy Bake Oven training school after all!

I can empathize… I baked oatmeal cookies last week – first time using the oven for baking in my new apartment, and what used to take 15 minutes at 250 now only takes 12 at 300. Merry Christmas!
