You know the problem, new house, new stove, old Christmas cookie recipe you could make in your sleep,
and your first baking session was this week!!! The old standbys burned in the same time the old house, old stove made them perfectly.

I was able to salvage them however....The old cheese grater or just a plain old grater. I grated the burnt part away and it is unnoticeable.

Having a house full on Saturday and I was going to try to scrape them with a knife and then I saw the grater and voila. Perfection again.

Just in case this happens to you give it a try.

Get an oven thermometer and see if it's registering the right temp. I tested my new oven and it was 25 degrees lower than what I set it at. The oven manual had instructions to adjust the heat setting so now when I put 350, it actually goes to 350. Your oven might actually be hotter than it says.

Hate the bloody thing, I am a natural gas girl and we only have propane here. This is electric and convection and two ovens and bells and gongs and whistles. I got as far as shopping for a gas stove and everyone talked me out of it. They said I woild enjoy the non cook top but the oven on propane is very different than the natural gas. I am stuck with a 15 month old stove that I hate. The devil you know is better than th one you don´t.

And I now have a new oven thermometer too.

Same adjustment for me this year had gas for 30+ years now I have a new electric here I hate it. The settings were off almost 100º so finally maintenance has it now where it runs 25º hotter. Lots of crunchy cookies this year on the outside trying to get the inside done.

You made my day. Many have said to me, how can you hate a stove?. My simple answer....try cooking a simple pot of rice and once it boils pull it from the burner and go to low and try to cook rice. Then after an eternity at low go to 2 and watch it boil over....then watch me with a razor blade clean my stove!!!!

End of discussion.
