Recipes for Wilton Cookie Pan Molds-Barcelona, etc.

post #1 of 10

icon_surprised.gif HELP!!! icon_surprised.gif

I was just given some Wilton Cookie pan molds (from the mid 80's, I believe) called the Barcelona, Venetian, and Parisian.

These originally came with some 'European' style cookie recipes.

Unfortunately I don't have the recipes and can't find them ANYWHERE on the internet-I even tried the Wilton website.

By any chance does anyone here have a copy they can email me or point me to where I might find these cookie recipes?

I'd also appreciate any cookie recipes that might work well in these pans.

THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well... I don't have them, but found what they were.
this link http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270400682656
says it was a Barcelona Nut cookie recipe on that sleeve.

This one http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180376021222 has
the sleeve, it had recipes for Parisian Peanut Butter Classics, Chocolate Cookies and Butter Cookies.

No luck on the other pan insert.

I also saw those cookie pans on ebay...I almost thought of buying the one just to get the recipes. icon_razz.gif

I've tried a butter/shortbread recipe in one of the pans...turned out very nicely once I figured how long to bake it to get it done without being overdone or 'raw'.

They're actually pretty nice pans... I already have a TON of wilton cake pans and since word has gone out, I've found myself the recipient of every one shot baking experience or event wilton baking pan.

cakepans4less.com used to have them in PDF . The site apparently isn't there any more.
Perhaps you could put a request out for someone who downloaded the PDFs from there?

Those pans were offered in several 1980's Wilton Yearbooks. There are two cookie recipes (besides the standard rolled cookie recipe) listed in those yearbooks.

There were 10 different classic cookie mold pans:
Marseilles (ladyfingers and rope-like sticks)
Bavaria (Tulips and daisies)
Barcelona (Patterned Diamonds and Fans)
Vienna (Crescents and Shells)
Venice (2 patterned squares)
Paris (Patterned oval and Patterned Peanut-shape)
English Tea ( Flower and Knot)
Swedish Almond Tart (Apples and Hearts)
Salzberg (Pretzel and Patterned Round)
Florentine (Wreath and Different Knot)

There were also 3 Holiday cookie mold pans:
Christmas 1 (Wreaths, Snowmen, Trees)
Christmas 2 (Angels, Toy Soldiers, Rocking Horses)
Teddy Bears (3 different bears, 2 are cookie pops)

The first recipe seems obviously to be used in the various cookie molds.
It mentions also being good for piped cookies. I assume that means in a pastry bag with your choice of tip. I'd probably use a big open star and sprinkle with large sparkling sugar.

The second seems to be for a different type of mold. Sounds good tho.

Mouthwatering Butter Cookies

May be made in mixer or food processor. This cookie dough is ideal for molds or for piping. To use for cut-out cookies just chill and roll out.
1 C. Butter
1 C. Sugar
2 Large Eggs
3 C. Flour
1 tsp. Cinnamon OR 1 tsp. grated Lemon rind

Preheat oven to 375F.

Cream butter: add sugar gradually. Blend until very light and creamy; beat in eggs. Add flour and cinnamon (or lemon rind). Stir until blended. Press dough into ungreased mold and prick 2 or 3 times with fork to keep dough from puffing while baking. Dough should be level with top of mold. Bake 10-15 minutes. Remove from molds immediately. Recipe yields 5 dozen molded or 7 dozen piped cookies.

Brown Butter Cookies

Sweet cake-like cookies with a delicate almond flavor.

3/4 C. Butter
1 2/3 C. Confectioners Sugar
1 C. Powdered Almonds
1/3 C. Flour
5 Egg Whites

Preheat oven to 350F.

Cook butter over medium heat just until light brown. Watch closely: butter burns easily. Mix the sugar, powdered almonds and flour together, Gently stir in egg whites, then the hot butter.

Baking: Generously butter the tartlet molds. Fill each mold halfway with the batter and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 13-15 mins. Remove immediately. Yields approx 2 dozen.

I hope this helps.

I didn't realize there were that MANY of these cookie pans!

Thanks also for the two recipes.

I wonder if they weren't popular...there certainly isn't much info about them.

I'm going to be on the lookout now for the cookie pans I don't have...(like I need one more cookie pan, cookie cutter or cake pan-my GOD, they are taking over my house!).

I keep waiting for the A&E Channel to contact me about my cake/cookie pan and cookie cutter obsession for their 'hoarders' program! I have plastic bins FILLED with the stuff.

I'm certain that you could find someone to help relieve you of those nasty, evil plastic bins filled with cookie cutters...

Please let us know if you find them, I'll keep an eye out myself. My curiosity is piqued.

If you really think you have a pan obsession, you should have a look at the Cake Pans album on my website. At last casual count I have over 800, most of which are in that album.

My husband built floor-to-ceiling shelves in my laundry room... each shelf holds 4 huge bins filled with my cake pan collection, 32 bins in all. The bins are sorted by category, like Christmas or vehicles or Disney. We also no longer have a dining room because all my wedding cake stuff (stands, plates, pillars, etc) is in there. There are cake things all over my house tucked into closets and under tables. (Including all of the Wilton yearbooks.)

It's frightening! icon_biggrin.gif Can you identify?

PS: I think I have all of those cookie molds, plus all the wilton Cookie Pop pans. And a bunch of others. So you think YOU have a problem?

Ahhh.... I see I won't be the only featured on the AE episode of cookie cutter & cake pan hoarders!

I'm definitely not in the running regarding cake pans...I think I only have a couple hundred...

But cookie cutters.... I started collecting them when I was about 9. I was a navy brat and we seemed to move every three months, I always got cookie cutters representing the area/locale we were living at. I got really serious about it in high school when I started baking on my own. Then I started collecting different and unusual cookie cutters. Later on in college I was the recipient of a lot of cookie cutters from elderly relatives of friends that were so excited that someone showed an interest in baking.

I'm just starting to go through & sort and catalog them because I have so many I don't even know/remember what I have anymore.

I collect them to use, also..

There's always another cookie cutter out there waiting for me...

Well if you run into ones you can't identify, post them in a thread and ask.
Everyone loves the 'what is this cutter?' threads.
