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?
