Cookie pans seem to be getting more and more popular as time goes by. The pans allow you to stamp cookies with different designs and bake cookie dough into different shapes without picking up a single cookie cutter or rolling in. They’re reminiscent of shallow cupcake pans, with designs in the bottom of each cup. Cookie dough is dropped into the molds and bakes in place, spreading to fill out the design.
Wilton’s Valentine Cookie Pan is a new seasonal release from Wilton. The cookie pan has some really adorable shapes, including puckered lips and a teddy bear, along with round cookies marked with Xs, Os and messages like “Be Mine.” The pan is nonstick and most cookies slide out easily. The pan will also work both with cakey cookies (might want to grease the pan a little for these, just in case) and crisp cookies, and because the Valentine’s designs aren’t quite so attached to a single holiday, these are cute enough to make all year round. No one is going to mind getting some heart-shaped cookies in summer or fall, as well as in the spring around V-day!
