    Can I make other types of cookies in a shortbread pan?

    I was thinking why can't I use any firm dough like refrigerated cookie dough in a shortbread pan? I tried to Google the question and no relevant answers popped up.

    I really have no idea.....in theory it should work.

    I suppose if you feel like experimenting, you could give it a go and report back, Steve. icon_smile.gif

    I would think a butter cookie or sugar cookie dough would probably work best (I believe they would be the closest to a shortbread dough.)

    One of the issues might be getting the cookies out of the pan. Shortbread is really buttery and will slide out almost of its own will. Other, less-short cookies may not want to come out.

    Line the entire pan with parchment paper going up the sides, with one sheet or by placing 2 pieces paper, one over the other, going in both directions with a little overhang.

    If I line it with parchment paper, won't that stop the design of the mold from imprinting on the cookies?

    Ah, you are using those fancy schmancy shortbread cookie molds.

    Sorry, I can't help with that. I suspect you are right, the parchment would likely interfere.
