The secret to delicious cookies is having a great recipe… and the best baking tools to make ’em. Here are our top 10 favorite baking accessories to help bake scrumptious cookies every time.
When I was a sophomore in college and still technically a fine arts student, I spent the last two weeks of school baking cookies for my friends while they prepared for and took their exams.
You see, I had turned in my final art projects, so I had all the time in the world. So I decided I would surprise them all with platters of homemade Tea Cake Cookies and Easy Sugar Cookie Icing as an early Christmas present.
One thing that was a challenge, though, was that I didn’t have the right baking tools to make the cookies, so it took longer than expected.
Why do I need these specific products to bake cookies?
Listen, I’ve baked a lot of cookies in my day… and I cannot stress enough about having the proper tools to make them.
Why? While these baking accessories and tools might be a bit of a splurge, if you’re seriously into cookies, they are helpful for baking cookies.
- The proper baking products help you mix your cookie dough consistently. (Also, mixing cookie dough with a whisk by hand is exhausting.)
- The proper baking accessories help your cookies bake evenly.
- The proper baking supplies help you decorate cookies at home with the kids (or your housemates!) or at a cookie decorating party.
Also, depending on the type of cookie you’re baking, you may or may not need some of these tools.
For example, if you’re making a drop cookie like a Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, you will need a cookie scoop. You won’t need a rolling pin or some other baking supplies.
However, if you’re baking Raspberry Linzer Snowflake Cookies, you’ll need that rolling pin and cookie cutters. You will not need a cookie scoop.
What are the best cookies to make with these baking accessories?
Like I said above, every cookie recipe requires a different combination of tools to make ’em happen.
That said, here are some of my family’s personal favorite cookies to bake:
- Funfetti Sugar Cookie Bars
- No-Bake S’mores Cookies
- Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
- Candy Cane Hershey Kiss Cookies
- Ginger Rosemary Shortbread Cookies
