Monster Cookie Remix

Monster Cookie Remix

Similar to classic monster cookies, these cookies have been remixed into a whole grain dairy-free (healthy) treat that's quick and easy to make - and customizable. :)

Cool Rack

Cool Rack

CIA Masters Collection 12 Inch x 17 Inch Wire Cooling Rack, Chrome Plate Steel

The ever-important cooling rack. Prevents cookies and goods from getting over-baked, soggy, deformed - keeps crusts crusty. Ever try cooling cookies on a plate? I have. Not good. I've tried cooling cookies on oven racks: the bars are too far apart - what a mess. I've balanced scones together on a plate to form little tipi-like structures... arg.

I checked-out many racks, and this is the one to get. Easy to clean (dishwasher-safe), sturdy and strong, oven-safe (you can roast on these), fits jellyroll and half sheet pans perfectly. The cheaper non-stick racks are flimsy, hard to clean and rust.

Tahini Oatmeal Walnut Cookies

Tahini Oatmeal Walnut Cookies

These sweet honey cookies from Jane Kinderlehrer's book "Smart Cookies" are delicious! They're so quick and easy to make too, a one bowl and one spoon deal. They can easily be made vegan (by subbing the honey with agave) as well as gluten-free (if you use gluten-free oats).

My Favorite Silicone Mat

My Favorite Silicone Mat

Silpat 11-5/8-by-16-1/2-Inch Nonstick Silicone Baking Mat (buy it here)

From the upper eshilon of baking mats, this is one of the best. This high-quality heavy-duty easy-to-clean baking mat is a kitchen essential. Besides its almost magical non-stick baking surface, it can also be used to make candy and roll dough. I've been using mine for over 3 years now, and it still looks like new. Bye bye greasy cookie sheets and creepy aerosol butter sprays - hello perfectly baked cookies.
