Tools for Measuring

Baking is a science and we need to make sure that every ingredient is exact. Professional bakers use kitchen scales, but the rest of use use measuring cups and spoons. I like to have a few different sets so one is always clean!

If you buy ONE tool, buy cookie scoops!

With these tools you’ll be able to make ANY cookie with success! Here are a few of my favorites:
