What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

What Have I Bought Now?

The day I found the adorable Marx Dollhouse, I also found all these cookie pans.  They are heavy duty and well made and I only paid $2.00 for all of them together.  But, I don't know what type of cookies they make!  Help?


 #3: Madeleine's?  Maybe?


This one is small, I think it is a chocolate mold????  It came with a bunch of small individual molds which I turned into these......
Which isn't at all cookie or chocolate related, but I like them. :) 

If you know what any of these are, thanks in advance! 


  1. Numbers two and four appear to be eclair pans. I have seen the others before, but I need to think a bit about those before I can give a thought about them. By the way, I only recently found your blog, and I do enjoy it......thanks.

  2. #3 is a madeleine pan for sure. There's also a molded French cookie called petits financiers, which are a molded rectangle about 2 by 3 inches or a little smaller ... I am not a cookie expert (other than eating) but I happen to have a cookie cookbook nearby because I haven't figured out what to make for my cookie exchange Saturday. There are all kinds of cool molded cookies to be made, apparently...

  3. I only recognized the madeleine pan. But I like them! :)

  4. Yes, they are eclair and madeleine pans. Are you putting them in your booth?

    You turned the little tart pans into cute ornaments!

  5. I think 4 is a ladyfinger pan (thinner than eclairs). Great find!
