The shortbus is too good for them, try this.

Anyone have a good recipe that can be used in molds (or tips for baking so the center bakes before the edges brown)?

This excited me enough that I googled a bit. Holidayscalendar.com points out that it's Gregor Mendel's birthday, and offers some observation suggestions:
National Bean Day can be celebrated in a number of different ways. You can simply use the day to enjoy your favorite bean recipe or to try out a new variety of bean. You can send friends and family bean related greeting cards or you can plant beans in your backyard garden.

I only regret that I learned of this too late to obtain and mail any bean-related greeting cards.

I'm still angry with shortbread because of the troubles I had with this NYT cookie reicpe at Christmas. No celebrating that this year.

Made a few batches a couple months ago. my best idea (necessary because i can't make anything a uniform size/sheet) was cutting appropriate sizes & the edges of the mass just became cookie bits that I still ate, but weren't fit for taking home to the fam.

Sorry, but I have no interest in lava cakes. They have nothing to do with molded shortbread.

Hey, I have you farkied as enjoying the same kind of foodstuffs as me.  I'm sending out some holiday treats and I have some extras.  EIP if you want some.

It's hot sauce, chili crisp, limoncello, probably some pickled okra.  Nonzero likelihood of chowchow.  Let me know if any of that sounds interesting.

Also paging dodecahederon if they want chili crisp because we had a conversation about it once and I like sharing.

Loves me some shortbread. Preferably with oat flour in it.

/sweetbreads are also delicious, but slightly different
