I bake a lot of cookies and over the years I’ve discovered a few tools that make cookie baking so much easier. These essential baking tools are ones that everyone should have in their kitchen – and most of them do double duty!

Tools for Mixing
My favorite tool is a stand mixer because it’s truly a workhorse, but it can be expensive. A hand mixer will do just fine for your cookie needs. Here are my favorite mixer choices:
- Kitchen Aid Mixer
- Cuisinart Hand Mixer
- Heat-safe silicone spatulas (that one actually comes with one created for peanut butter, which I LOVE)
- Glass bowls
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!
- Dry Measuring Cups
- Liquid Measuring Cups
- Measuring Spoons
- Sticky Measuring Cups – the only thing I use to measure out peanut butter!
- Cookie Scoops – if you buy ONE thing buy these – they make everything the same size!
If you buy ONE tool, buy cookie scoops!PRO TIP
Tools for Rolling and Decorating
Making sugar cookies? Then you’ll want some extra tools to make cutout shapes and fun decorations!
- Rolling Pin – I’m picky about these – no handles!
- Cookie Cutter Set
- Frosting Tip Set
- Disposable Pastry Bags
- My Sprinkle Store
Tools for Baking
To bake cookies you need cookie sheets! Almost any cookie sheet will do, but these are my favorite because they’re affordable but work well and last. Plus, I never bake directly on the cookie sheet: I always use parchment or silicone baking mats.
With these tools you’ll be able to make ANY cookie with success! Here are a few of my favorites:
