I have the Wilton giant cookie pan and that works great. Right now I need to bake a few 6 inch round cookies. I am using a shortbread recipe. Can I simply bake the cookies in my 6" cake pans. If so, do I press the dough out to the edges of the pan or do I leave a little spreading room all the way around? So far, I have not found a 6" cookie cutter. Thanks for your help.

I don't if shortbread spreads but I left about an inch of space all around and my NFSC baked perfectly in it! I got the idea from the post about putting a sugar cookie in your cake as a layer of filling. It was quite yummy!!!

Good luck,

shortbread normally does not spread or puff. I would press it to the edge to be sure of nice clean edges. I would also use parchment to be certain they release from the pans clean.
