The holiday season is upon us, and I am so excited to start baking cookies! I find baking cookies to be so relaxing and enjoyable. I bake cookies for my family to eat, to bring to Christmas gatherings, and I also love baking cookies to give away as Christmas gifts. They are always a huge hit!

I know Christmas is still a few months away, but you can start baking cookies now, and freeze them until you need them. I like to bake several batches several weeks before Christmas to save me time later on when things get super busy. Learn how to freeze cookies here.
After baking cookies for several years, I have found that there are a few kitchen tools that make baking cookies like a pro so much easier. These 6 specific tools save a lot of time, and just keep things running smoothly in the kitchen.

MIXER – The very first thing I would highly recommend for baking cookies like a pro is a good mixer. Mixing cookie batter by hand is not only very time consuming, but it can also be hard on your wrists. I’d much rather leave all the work up to a mixer. A hand mixer will do, but I absolutely love my KitchenAid stand mixer, and can’t imagine my life without it now! There are so many beautiful colors to choose from, too!

Silicone Scraping Spatula – After your mixer has done all the work of mixing up the cookie batter, a silicone scraping spatula really comes in handy for scraping down the sides of the bowl, to make sure you get all of the cookie dough.
Cookie Scoop – A cookie scoop is a must-have for baking cookies! It takes the guess work out of measuring out cookie batter, and makes all of your cookies uniform in size. No more cookies that are too small or too big!
Farberware Insulated Nonstick Bakeware 15-1/2-Inch x 20-Inch Jumbo Cookie Sheet – This T-Fal AirBake Natural Cookie Sheet is one of the best cookie sheets for baking cookies. First of all, it’s huge! You can bake a lot of cookies all at once on this cookie sheet. It’s non-stick, so the cookies slide right off, and it cleans up so easily. This cookie sheet is very easy to maintain and features a raised lip on the end, making it easy to insert and remove from the oven. I have had my cookie sheet for over 10 years now, and it’s still in great condition!
Cookie Spatula – When cookie sheets get crowded, this new and improved cookie spatula gets into tight spaces without damaging your cookies!
3 Tier Cooling Rack – After your cookies come out of the oven, they need to be cooled. This 3 tier cooling rack is non-stick and easy to clean. I love that it has 3 tiers, so you can cool quite a few cookies on it at the same time. It also collapses for easy storage, and is dishwasher safe!
Baking cookies for Santa? I am in love with this adorable cookie plate! I think my kids would love to set cookies for Santa out on a plate just for him!
