What is a muffin-top pan? It's a pan with 6 wells in it that are 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch deep and about 3-1/2 inches across, pictured below with Shenandoah Log Cabin from Cookies 'n' Quilts.
Muffin-tops pans, so important to the success of some of my cookies, aren't available everywhere. Below are some sources for them. I have never dealt with any of these companies. I do not endorse them, nor do I have any reason to believe they would not be perfectly satisfactory to deal with.
I own and have used both gray and black muffin-top pans. When I wrote the book recommending the gray ones, I didn't realize that they would be so hard to come by. I got my gray pan years ago. I found the black pan scorched the cookies a little. However....
New tip! I continued to do some tinkering and discovered that the black pans work great if you line them with a flattened paper baking cup (an ordinary cupcake liner that you smash flat).
These are the internet sources I have found. I'm guessing these are all black pans. If you learn of any others, please let me know.
