Spring Cookie Pan

Spring Cookie Pan

Rolling out cookie dough can be a little bit of a pain in the you-know-what because it can be time consuming and make a bit of a mess in the kitchen – especially when you compare the process to making a quick batch of drop cookies. Rolling out the dough and decorating the shaped cookies is rewarding when you’ve finished up some cute holiday cookies, but using a Spring Cookie Pan is a lot easier and you still get an awfully cute result. The nonstick pan has cookie-shaped cavities in it that you simply drop dollops of dough into. During baking – which is about the same time as for a “regular” cookie – the cookie dough spreads out to fill in all the nooks and crannies of the cookie shapes, then they just pop out looking great. This particular pan has a daisy, tulip, butterfly and ladybug shapes. It makes a dozen cookies at a time. As an additional bonus, this particular pan is dishwasher safe, so not only do you save on prep, you save on cleanup as well.

The shaped cookies can easily be decorated, but the shapes come through pretty well without frosting, so you can leave them just as they come out of the oven. If you still want to stick with the more traditional rolled out cookies, check out this set of bunny and carrot cutters for Easter/spring.

    This looks great. I will have to try because I hate rolling out cookie dough.

    This is a great way to not deal with the hassle of rolling out sugar cookies. I just made some sugar cookie bars that are another alternative to the time sink of rolling and cutting. I think I’m going to make them again for Easter and use cookie cutters to cut the bars into thick cookies…

    Very cute pan! I just love Crate and Barrel… don’t you? They always have the cutest holiday items.

  • Great find–and it’s probably extra-fun to decorate, with the designs already on the cookie. I’ll have to make some Spring cookies with my kids soon, Easter always sneaks up on me!

    Rolling out cookie dough can be a little bit of a pain in the you-know-what because it can be time consuming and make a bit of a mess in the kitchen…ain’t that the truth! I have never enjoyed that part of the process and have handed it off at the next Bake Day gathering. Some people enjoy it and some people are good at it–I’m neither. These are very nice pans. Thanks for sharing a find as always!!

    I bought one of these pans and my husband used it once. The cookies ended up “rising” in the pan and then when they cooled, they fell. So we had “sunken” cookies. Which when you flipped them out, wasn’t too bad until you picked them up and realized they were hollow. Anyone else have this issue?
