My husband always says that you always need the right tool for the right job, and the same holds true in the kitchen. Having the right tools, gadgets, and ingredients all ready for you means that the process will go smoother. You’ll turn out dozens of delicious cookies. Here’s what I recommend:

KitchenAid 5-Qt. Artisan Design Series with Glass Bowl

For making the dough, a good stand mixer is key, just beware of little fingers.

KitchenAid 5-Speed Ultra Power Hand Mixer

A hand mixer is fine for most of these recipes too.

Stainless Steel Measuring Cups And Measuring Spoons 10-Piece Set, 5 Cups And 5 Spoons

It's actually helpful to have a couple sets if you are baking a lot of cookies.

Nordic Ware Insulated Baking Sheet, Metallic

You don’t want those cookies you worked so hard to make to burn or stick to the pan, so I sometimes use insulated cookie sheets.

AmazonBasics Silicone Baking Mat Sheet, Set of 2

To keep cookies from crumbling, a silicone baking mat is always a huge help.

Wilton Excelle Elite 3-Tier Cooling Rack

And stackable cooling racks do double duty for letting those cookies cool quickly without taking up a lot of space on your counter, and being a great place to get to work with icing or sprinkles.
