Halloween is coming up in a couple of weeks and that means that stores are starting to stock up on Halloween items, from candy to costumes. Wilton has a new Halloween Cookie Pan out this year. This pan is designed with separate cavities for cookie dough balls and bakes your cookies into one of 12 different Halloween shapes. It’s really nice that each of the shapes is unique, as it makes the batch of cookies that much more interesting – kind of like looking through a bag of Halloween candy where every piece is different, but they’re all your favorite flavor. The shapes include a mummy, spiderweb, bat, ghost, tombstone and candy corn, to name just a few.
The pan is nonstick and because the designs aren’t too complex, there are few corners to trap dough in; the cookies should all release easily from this pan. Once they’re out, you can serve them as-is or decorate them with icing. You can use homemade cookie dough and can also use prepackaged cookie dough (if you’re really looking for convenience). The finished cookies are about 1/4 inch thick and the baking time and temperature should be about the same as it is for whatever recipe you’re working with.
