Best Cookie Making Tools
You all know how much we love our cookie recipes around here. Big, bakery style cookies filled with cinnamon chips, chocolate chips, or glazed with buttermilk. Whatever way you like to eat your cookies, here are some of the kitchen baking tools we wouldn’t be able to live without.
- KitchenAid Mixer. Whether it is a stand mixer or a 7-speed hand mixer, an electric mixer is an important place to start. This will ensure that all of the ingredients get evenly mixed together. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl several times while you are mixing!
- Cute Mixing Bowl. And why not have a cute mixing bowl in the meantime? This one from Mud Pie makes me so happy. 🙂
- Silpat Baking Mat. I’m not sure what I did without these. Line your baking sheets with one of these and your cookies will not get too brown and will not stick to the pan.
- Baking Sheets. I’ve used many kinds of baking sheets. Flat sheets with one edge, baking pans with edges on all four sides. And most recently, perforated baking sheets. I do notice a difference with these baking sheets. The bottom of the cookies are even cooked because air can circulate better.
- Cookie Scoop. So these are really like ice cream scoops, but come in all different sizes. Easily scoop uniform cookies with one click!
- Rolling Pin. I prefer to use a basic, wooden rolling pin. No frills!
- Cookie Cutters. It’s always good to have some basic cookie cutters. I’d say my circle cutters are the ones I use the most. You can make them into so many different things!
- Oven Thermometer. Do your cookies always brown too much or do they take longer than a recipe indicates? Be sure you’ve checked your oven temperature to make sure it is heating properly. These economical oven thermometers make it easy!
- Cookie Spatula. Rubber coated, the perfect size for transferring cookies from a pan to a wire cooling rack. It is heat resistant up to 600 degrees so can be used for pan cooking, too. The flexible rubber coating makes it easy to scrape dough off of spoons and bowls. Like a rubber spatula and metal spatula in one!
- Cookie Cooling Racks. A necessary thing. But cooling racks take up a space that a lot of people don’t have. These are brilliant little stackable cooling racks for every kitchen. They collapse for easy storage, too!
- Cute Cookie Plate. When it comes to cookies, taste is first, but presentation is next. I love this cookie plate and the little “Lookie…Cookies” cookie tongs. perfect size for holding about 10 large cookies or 15-20 small cookies.
- Cookie Storage. Once your cookies are baked and cooked, you need somewhere to store them! I find that these Rubbermaid Takealongs are perfect for stacking several dozen cookies. These are my go-to cookie transporters and freezers. I freeze cookie dough in these stackable containers, too!
