Cookie Baking Essentials Guide.


You guys all know that I am the BIGGEST Cookie Monster! I LOVE cookies! I love creating cookie recipes, baking cookies, eating cookies, and sharing cookies! Cookies make the world a better place. FACT!

Some of my favorite cookie recipes include: chocolate chip, peanut butter, monster, snickerdoodles, peanut butter oatmeal, kitchen sink, triple chip chocolate, and MORE!

I always get asked what I use to bake cookies so today I am sharing my Cookie Baking Essentials! All of the items you need to make PERFECT cookies! These are my tried and true items that I use every time I bake cookies…which is almost every day:)

And if you are looking for cookie recipes, I’ve got you covered! You can find all of my favorite COOKIE RECIPES HERE! Happy cookie baking!

  1. KitchenAid Stand Mixer-I LOVE my KitchenAid Mixers! My favorite kitchen appliance!
  2. Baking Sheets-I LOVE Williams Sonoma’s Gold Touch Baking Sheets. The half sheet pans are my favorite! They are made with commercial-grade aluminized steel that distributes heat quickly and evenly for consistent baking results. Never use dark pans or your cookies will burn!
  3. Silpat Baking Mat-I always use Silpat baking mats! Easy clean up and the mats help the cookies bake evenly and they prevent spreading. They are reusable and I use them A LOT:)
  4. Measuring Cups-love these stainless steel measuring cups. Comes in all the sizes you need!
  5. Measuring Spoons-love this stainless steel set!
  6. Mixing Bowls-I use mixing bowls for whisking dry ingredients together. I love this set.
  7. Whisk-I use a whisk to whisk my dry ingredients together.
  8. Spatulas-love the different sizes in this set. Great for scraping down the mixing bowl! I also love these spatulas because they are for a great cause and so fun!
  9. Silicone Cookie Spatula-perfect for lifting cookies off of the baking sheet.
  10. Oven Thermometer-It’s always good to check the temperature of your oven because they are usually off. This little thermometer goes right inside the oven and is accurate.
  11. Cookie Scoop– This is a good one. Lots of sizes.
  12. Oven Mitt-Everyone needs a good oven mitt!
  13. Cooling Rack-I like this cooling rack because it has 3 tiers and doesn’t take up a lot of space.
  14. Maldon Sea Salt Flakes-my favorite sea salt for sprinkling on my cookies. The salt brings out the best flavor!
  15. Guittard Chocolate Chips-My favorite brand of chocolate chips! I like semi-sweet chocolate chips in my cookies, but if you are a milk chocolate fan, their milk chocolate chips are good too!
  16. Dutch Process Cocoa-I like to use Dutch Process Cocoa. The flavor is so rich and chocolaty!
  17. Adding my favorite glass containers for flour, oats, and sugar!
  18. Boxes & Bags– for gifting cookies!
Get the best of the best!

  1. I love your recipies and cookbook! I’ve been slowly purchasing some of your kitchen essentials. I was just wondering if you had any suggestions for a thermometer to measure water temperature, for example when making your Perry Rolls recipe?

  2. I love your cookie recipes. Where do you purchase your baking essentials. Are there any mail-order stores you would recommend? I have enjoyed several of your other recipes but my favorite thing is to bake cookies.
