  • Bar Cookies – 15 x 10-inch pan – 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Tart Shell or Cheesecake crust – in 9-inch tart or springform pan – 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Pie Crust – 9-inch pie plate – 10 to 15 minutes – push crust down to form shell soon after removing from oven.
  • Dessert Cookie or Pizza – 10 to 12-inch circle – 10 to 15 minutes.
