5 ITEMS EVERY ASPIRING BAKER NEEDS
We at Doughp know a lot about baking, we are an edible and bakeable cookie dough company, after all! And it would be selfish of us to not share our top five most essential baking items any aspiring kitchen artist needs.
We use each of these items to make our infamous no-bake cookie dough, but these items can be used in a variety of ways to make all sorts of sweetness. From cakes to cookies to crepes, these are our favorite tools:
Five Essential Baking Items You Need
Hand and Stand Mixers:
Mixers are a no-brainer—you gotta get that dough mixed somehow! Hand mixers are great for those wanting to have more control over their mixing. For example: saving you time whisking and folding ingredients into one another. Stand mixers are perfect for when you’re wanting the mixture to form with a repeated motion (and it allows for multitasking!).
Precise measurements are critical, so grab a food scale for adequate measuring. Sure, you can eyeball it, but food scales guarantee proper amounts of ingredients--crucial when baking. Digital scales are perfect for switching between grams and ounces as you navigate recipes.
Sick of all that parchment paper? Switch to silicone baking mats. They’re non-stick, so your ingredients won’t attach to the sheet and break when you peel your food off. They’re also fantastic for kneading dough or rolling out cookie dough.
This is a no-brainer for every baker. Silicone spatulas come in a variety of sizes, so you can get into every nook and cranny of your mixing bowl and gently lift up edges due to its flexibility. It’s also fantastic for non-stick pots and pans, as it won’t scrape off the surface.
Baking Sheets and Cooling Racks:
The queen of baking sheets: those that are rimmed. These ensure that batter doesn’t run (hello sheet cakes), and chocolate chip cookie dough rises into the perfect bite. Cooling racks come in different forms: some grids are close together, while others are spaced apart. For baking, choose smaller grids to allow the food to cool and avoid warm centers from sagging or breaking.
Wanna skip the mess in the kitchen and just get to the spoonlicking? Stock up on our legit cookie dough. You can eat it raw or heat it so you can get all the best cookie experiences.
