TOOLS I USED FOR THIS RECIPE:

  • USA Pan Half Sheet Pan – my go-to sheet pans, these are truly non-stick and clean up nicely.
  • KitchenAid 6 Qt. Stand Mixer – I always recommend a stand mixer as it saves time and helps to keep baked goods consistent.
  • Rubber Spatula – a must for any home baker! Perfect for scrapping cookie dough out of the mixing bowl.
  • Portion Scoops – my go to for getting even sized cookies that bake perfectly each time!
