My DH gave me this pan a couple of years ago and I have never used it. I was just curious if anyone else has used it and what your thoughts are about the pan. Do you love it, hate it, indifferent? I'd love to hear what you think! TIA

I almost bought this same one this week. I hope someone answers you so I know if it's worth it!

I have that pan! I have never used it- it is on display with several other cookie pans and stonewear molds. I guess I should get it out and try it.

I ended up trying it out and while it is cute, the detail (as I knew would happen) was completely lost. They ended up looking kind of like big blobs. I know that I could decorate them, but then I would rather just make regular flat gingerbread cookies and decorate those. Another issue I had was that some of the cookies were smaller than others, so they baked faster making them overdone. So...while it is a cute pan I probably won't use it again.

Thank you so much! The details getting lost is exactly what I was wondering about.

I was given this pan a year ago and i haven't the slightest idea what to do with it. How did you use yours..did you press the cookies into the pan??

I wish you had posted this before last weekend when I bought the pan. I used it for sugar cookies and hated the way they turned out. As others have stated, you lose the design and the cookies get much too thick. I won't use it again for cookies...well maybe I won't. I may experiment a little and see if I can get them to work as I really think the designs are cute. Chocolate is a good idea--thanks.

Yes, I rolled some cookie dough into a ball and then pressed it into the molds. I leveled them off with a knife so that they would be completely flat. The directions that came with the pan were not very clear, but this way seemed to work. I will definitely use it for chocolates but not cookies again!

I have a few of these pans -- Christmas, Valentines and Easter. They make great shortbread. A single recipe will fill the pan once -- I just divide the dough into 12 and press it into the pan with fingers after I've sprayed it lightly with Pam. I prick the back of the cookies with a fork. The cookie cavity doesn't need to be filled to the top -- they do expand a bit. I think it only takes about 15 min. or less to bake -- let the edges get just barely golden. Cool in the pan 10 minutes and then tip out.

You can also add 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips to the dough -- that's good.

The Gingerbread recipe that comes with the Wilton pan is tasty also. I have dipped the back of the cookie into a Toba like glace for flavor -- then the design still shows on the front.
