We are proud to announce the official release of our newest addition to the Silpat Perfect Baking Collection : the Silpat Perfect Scone Mold!
Inspired by the American version of scones, this specially designed non-stick tray will ensure you achieve the signature triangular shape every time. Scones are dense, doughy, can be sweet, or savory. Our favorite way to enjoy them is in the mornings with a hot cafe au lait.
