If you are like me, this time of the year, you become the baking expert. Pulling out all the cookie sheets and baking supplies and tools you need for the holiday's "Big Bake-off" or "Cookie Swap." This is the second part of the create a baking zone area for your baking needs. We discussed going through the baking supplies, and I provided a checklist for you to use: CREATE A COMPLETE BAKING SUPPLIES ZONE WITH THIS CHECKLIST AND TIPS
And now, it's the best time to go through the baking tools in your kitchen. To make this process easier, below, I created a holiday baking tools list. Print the list out and pull out every baking tool you have. Look at them carefully and check them off the list below. While you are looking through your baking tools, why not clear the clutter of items you don't use too. Here are some questions to ask yourself while going through your baking tools:
- Do you need to replace any of your rusted tools?
- Are disposable tools needed this year?
- Do any of the baking tools need replacing?
- What did you use up last time you baked? Are you missing icing? Are you missing spices?
I didn't include in the baking tools list items like pizzelle irons, piping bags, and other unique items for your baking needs. Instead, I added rows so you can add your customized baking tools.
The Complete List of Tools You Need in Your Baking Zone

- Pie plates.
- Ramekins/soufflé dish.

After you have gone through your baking tools, it's time to schedule when you are going to go to pick up the missing items. Look for online coupons to help reduce the costs of the supplies. Then, of course, schedule time for baking. Break up the different activities over a few days or a marathon day of baking. Get everyone involved if you have family members in your home. They will love it. What type of cookies do you like to bake during the holidays? Please leave a message below. Visit our cookie recipe collection on this blog.
