Everything You Need for Cookie-Baking Season

Gearing up for a cookie marathon? Make sure you’re equipped with the right tools to make your work efficient and fun. Here are some top picks from our editors and contributors.

    Oxo Nonstick 1-Rim Cookie Sheet

    While rimmed baking sheets are kitchen workhorses, they cause most cookies spread too much during baking. Investing in rimless cookie sheets (or 1-rim, which makes them easy to grab from the oven) can make all the difference in your baking. These ones from Oxo are sturdy and boast a subtle raised pattern that prevents sticking and increases airflow for more even cooking.

    Joseph Joseph Adjustable Rolling Pin

    Rolling pin rings are a handy way to ensure your roll your cookie dough to even thickness. This French-style pin from Joseph Joseph takes the concept one step further with varying sizes of “rings” integrated into the pin itself. Just unscrew the end caps to adjust to the size you need. They all store together so nothing gets lost. The pin itself is also marked with measurements to ensure you roll to the size you need.

    Ateco Superflex Reusable Pastry Bag

    Reusable pastry bags can be difficult to clean, but disposables are, well, not the best for the environment. These bags from Ateco offer the best of both worlds. Made of a silicone-like plastic, they clean up easily in the dishwasher, and offer great control and precision (they can be used either with couplers or directly with piping tips).

    India Tree Natural Food Coloring

    Want true, clear colors on your cookie icing without synthetic dyes? India Tree’s food colors are completely plant-derived and natural. The set of liquid colors includes red, yellow, and blue, which you can blend to create just about any color you’d like. Though the hues are surprisingly bright for natural dyes, you’ll want to use a bit more than you would of traditional food coloring.

    A Stacked Deck for Cooling

    When you’re in the midst of a holiday-baking throw down, you’ll want this cooling rack from Linden Sweden on hand. It allows you to have four pans of cookies cooling at one time, all in the footprint of one pan. If you have the space, you can also use it to organize and neatly store baking sheets in a cabinet when it’s off duty. Or if you’re tight on space, it folds flat for storage.

    Silpat Macaron Mat

    Delicate French macarons are best baked on a silicone baking mat to evenly distribute the heat and prevent sticking. This version from Silpat is conveniently marked with 20 circles for piping the batter, so spacing them evenly is a breeze.

    The Big Knife

    Even with a ruler and your longest possible knife, it can be difficult to make straight cuts in bar cookies, especially if they’re thick or multilayered. Enter American Metalcraft’s pizza knife, which is great not only for cleaving a big cheese-covered pie into wedges but also perfect for cutting bar cookies. At 23 inches long, the pizza knife will let you cut clean squares or rectangles for treats baked even in a large 12 x 16 sheet pan, and the nearly 4-inch-wide blade can handle your tallest bar cookies, too.
