A cookie cake pan contains cavities designed to mold a cookie batter into desired shapes, similar in appearance to traditional cut-out cookies. In order to achieve a cake-like texture in a cookie cake pan, it is best to choose a cookie pan that contains deep cavities, as the cookies will rise enough to fill the mold. Finding a cookie pan that contains smooth, nonstick surfaces is also important for easy cookie removal. Ceramic and silicone cookie cake pans may be helpful for providing a smooth surface for baking cookie cakes.

Most cookie cake pans contain cavity molds that are filled with cookie or cake batter, designed in various shapes and sizes. Finding a cookie cake pan that contains deep enough cavities is important to help produce a light and airy baked product, similar to a risen cake. With enough leavening agent, cookie batter usually fills the entire cavity, resulting in a cookie that is very similar to a traditional cake in texture, yet has the appearance of a shaped cookie. More often than not, a cookie cake will harden slightly upon cooling, yet it will still retain its light and airy cake-like texture due to the rising process.

Cookie cake pans must have a smooth, nonstick surface to ensure easy removal of the cookie cakes after baking in the oven. Most bakeware stores sell a cookie cake pan made from ceramic with a nonstick surface, yet these items are often more expensive than other options. Silicone cookie cake pans and sheets are common in stores selling bakeware, providing a smooth and nonstick surface and more affordability than ceramic or glass versions. Glass cookie cake pans may be another option for some individuals, yet these bake wares must be greased before placing batter into the cavities.

Since most cookie cake pans are produced with molds reminiscent of a holiday season, it is best to find a cookie cake pan that is suitable for the occasion. If looking for a cookie cake pan that doesn't contain chemicals made during the production process, it may be important to find a Teflon® free pan with a natural nonstick surface. Cast iron cake pans may be another option, due to their durability and strength, though they will initially be more expensive. It is also best to find a cake pan that comes with instructions on use and recipes that will suit the specific type of pan, as some recipes do not produce quality cookie cakes in particular pans.
