We’ve gathered up some of our favorite modern baking supplies (most of which we personally use in our own kitchens) to make these old-fashioned Christmas cookie recipes.
All the cookie-baking supplies you’ll need this holiday season — and then some!
Tools for measuring

Sure, you can find much cheaper wooden spoons, but if you are an devoted home cook, then you deserve quality in your essential kitchen tools! Made by skilled artisans and woodworkers in Lancaster Pennsylvania, each spoon is carved and sanded smooth. Made from 100% pure locally-sourced maple, these wooden spoons are light but extremely strong, durable, and food safe.

Made of food-grade silicone and BPA-free, these silicone spatulas do not react with food or beverages, or produce any hazardous fumes. Sturdy and durable, they are firm enough to use for flipping and scraping, but soft enough that they won't scratch your pans.
This versatile trio of glass mixing bowls include 3 sizes that do triple duty. Glass is the ideal material for cooking: in one bowl, you can mix your ingredients, pop into the microwave when you need to, and even serve, all in the same bowl. With 3 sizes to work with, you’re ready for anything your recipe calls for. Pop them into the dishwasher for easy clean-up, and then store them nested to save space.
