Constructed of a heavy cast iron or a coated aluminum surface, this type of pan is made for baking shortbread cookies. Typically made with a non-stick surface, the Shortbread pan is filled with the rich, buttery flavored dough that is baked into a tender but crumbly texture for cookies and dessert crusts. Made to produce the traditional shape that is pressed into decorative molds and baked until solid, a Shortbread Pan is contoured with square or round pattern designs that include ridges so the biscuit-like cookies can be broken apart evenly after cooking. This type of pan can bake not only shortbread cookies and biscuits, but also cakes, dessert bars, and various pan breads such as cornbread.
