Have you tried baking pastries using a turbo broiler?

We use the turbo broiler mostly for chicken, liempo and aahhh crispy pata. ^^ Yummy! ^^ Maybe some use it for baking. However, I don't know how to convert the temperature from a regular oven to a turbo broiler and that's the reason why I don't engage myself into baking. Anyway, I came across this website (Home Cooking Rocks!) while looking for a chocolate lollipop recipe. I saw her recipe "The chocolate chunk cookies" using a turbo broiler. Hmmmmm, that caught my attention. ^^ According to the site:
Let's see... ^^
A non-stick pan
First Attempt: I did not preheat the turbo broiler. Set the temperature to 150 for 10 minutes. And the result is...
Yaiks, di naluto yung loob. ^^
Second Attempt: I set the temperature to 200 for 10 minutes. And this is the result... Heehee!
Third Attempt: Set the turbo broiler for 150 for 10 minutes.
PERFECT!!! ^^ Crunchy outside, chewy inside.
So, I therefore conclude (NAKS!) when baking in a turbo broiler, we need to make some adjustments. Turbo broiler or convection oven circulates heated air using a fan. This not only prevents overheating of food but also helps warm the food faster than the conventional oven. In baking, we need to lower the temperature for even results. ^^
Technique: Preheat the turbo broiler for 150 degrees for 3-5 minutes. For baking cookies, Default setting is 150 degrees for 10 minutes (chewy). If you want it a little crunchier bake it for 11-13 minutes.
