???--first year baking Christmas cookies in a convection oven--confused

Normandie | Dec 20, 2009 08:15 AM

I only really make cookies at Christmastime, and this year I got my first-ever convection oven. I'm a little bit confused about which cooking mode--conventional bake or convection bake--would be best. Some people, including the service rep, and some sources I've read have told me conventional mode is still best for cookies. Others indicate to use convection, that that's the point of it, that you can bake multiple sheets at once and still get even cooking due the air movement.

So, IYOs, conventional or convection? And, if I use convection, should I still stick with one tray at a time, as I did with conventional? And with convection should I still rotate the cookies sheets and if baking multiple trays, switch them from one rack to another halfway through?

This is a Dacor oven, if anyone has one and in case it matters. Thanks a lot.
