How do you convert cooking times to different temperatures?

You convert cooking times to different temperatures by accounting for the percentage difference between the temperatures. Once you figure out the percentage difference, multiply the initial cooking time by it. It’s also important to factor in some wiggle room to make sure you don’t ruin your favorite recipe, like these old-fashioned sugar cookies.

Example: Start temperature is 400 F or 200 C with a 60-minute cooking time, and you want to increase the temperature to 450 F or 230 C.

Divide 400 by 450 to get the percentage difference of 0.89, or 89%. You will then take the initial cooking time of 60 minutes at 400 F, or 200 C, and multiply it by 0.89 to get 53 minutes.
