Step 8 FOR OVEN - Bake in a 375F oven for 18 minutes
Step 9 FOR TURBO BROILER - Bake for Turbo broiler 10-11 minutes.

Leave the cookies on the sheets for about five minutes to firm up then lift gently and transfer to a rack. Cool completely.


NOTE:
1. If you will use a conventional Oven, follow the temperature in your recipe guide.
2. If you will use a convection Oven or a Turbo broiler, you need to make an adjustments for the temperature.
***Always remember: 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.
