AHA! This is a shortcake pan:

If you used a square 8x8 pan then you have to expect that it would take longer to bake - you would have to use cake pan times instead of the shortcake pan times. For a standard dull aluminum 8x8x2 inch cake pan with 4 cups of batter the baking temp would be 350F for 35-40 minutes.

Shortbread pans mostly appear to be either cast aluminum or ceramic with decorative patterns. Chicago Metallic offers a cast aluminum one.

Directions to reduce the oven temperature by 25 F for a non-stick pan were, no doubt, in comparison to a similar sized light colored sheet aluminum pan.

Cast alum. and ceramic pans would have different heat transfer characteristics more like your non-stick pan than a thinner sheet aluminum pan.
