Mini Scone Pan

I’ve always made scones by patting the dough into a circle and then cutting it into wedges to be placed on the baking sheet, or in my case onto a baking stone.  I felt it might be time to try something new, so I picked up a Nordic Ware Mini Scone Pan at TJ Maxx.

It seems like 16 smaller scones would be nice for entertaining, rather than the much larger scones that I usually bake.

My first batch in the new pan was dried cranberry scones – quite plain and not too sweet.

The dough is quite sticky and it was challenging to get it divided evenly between the 16 sections and spread into the corners.  Does anyone have any tips to make this step easier?

Some of the scones were thinner than the others, but they did release from the pan very easily.

You can see how nicely browned the bottom and the sides of these scones came out.

I’d say that this baking pan is worth having and I’m looking forward to baking more scones in it and also cornbread triangles to enjoy with soup or stew.  Do any of you use one of these scone pans and  do you like it?

Hello there- found you from Sylvia's blog Grandmother's Blessings.....are you from STS, by chance?

Your teacup is gorgeous in this post - and your thanksgiving cornucopia, is that yours? I think that is one of the most beautiful Thanksgiving pictures I have ever seen.

Glad I found you, I am your newest member.

Happy Tea Tuesday!

I ALMOST went into to TJM today. But it was snowing and I just wanted to get what I needed in the store next door, then get home. Hmmmmmm.......

I adore my Nordic Ware mini scone pane, and if they have them at T.J. Maxx, well, I wouldn't mind having another! I have dealt with the sticky dough issue this way: Just before filling the pan, lightly spray one hand with cooking spray, and when you spoon the dough into the different compartments of the pan, you can easily pat it down without it sticking to you and everything else. Hope that helps!

Thank you for reviewing the scone pan! I've been debating getting one of these. How did you prep it to release the scones easily? My mom taught me to use butter, but that' doesn't always work well for me.

Beth,

This pan has a nice non stick finish. I spray the pan with organic cooking spray and the scones or cornbread release very easily.

Angela,

Thanks for the tip for dealing with sticky dough.

Nice! I can see this would be quite nice to have for scones. Hummm? Thinking I might need one.
