Halloween is the perfect time of year to get creative with baked goods. You can pretty much go all out with colors and unusual decorations – after all, when else would you see Zombie Cookie Cutters and a Witch Finger Shortbread Pan? This year, Wilton has come out with a spooky new design that will make a great addition to any Halloween bakeware collection. Their Bone Cookie Pan bakes five bone-shaped bar cookies at a time. The pan is nonstick and the well defined bones are so smooth that they should release easily once baked. The bones are all about 6 inches long and about half an inch thick after baking. Since you’ll probably have to bake in batches to accommodate a large batch of cookie dough, it is also worth noting that the pan will cool down quickly, so you don’t have to wait too long to refill it once you’ve popped out an already baked batch of bones.
Any kind of cookie dough will work in this pan, whether you like chocolate chip, sugar cookies, shortbread or even brownies. You will probably have to bake a test batch to get the right baking time for your recipe once you start baking in these unusual molds. The bones can be served as-is or you can enrobe them in chocolate. You can even use some ganache or buttercream as glue to stick two half bones together to make one 3D bone for your Halloween table.
And when Halloween is over? You can always use this pan to make some pretty sharp looking dog biscuits that any puppy would be happy to eat.
