8 Essential Cookie Baking Tools

An Inside-Look at The Best Baking Tools for the Perfect Cookie

Here at COOKIE…Take a Bite! we bake a lot of cookies, and over the years have found some baking tools in our kitchen that we cannot live without! Most of these baking supplies are inexpensive, serve multiple purposes, and are the true secret to the perfect cookie.

Here is your inside look at our bakery’s cookie toolkit and how we use these eight essential baking tools every day to hand-make all our fresh organic cookies.

1. Bench Scraper

When baking our gourmet cookies at COOKIE…Take a Bite! we always have this scraper tool on hand. This is a baker’s best bet when it comes to easily cutting up ingredients like butter. 

Nothing beats this tool when it comes to easy cleanup. When a fresh batch of our Classic Chocolate Chip cookies is ready, this scraper easily removes any dried chocolate leftover on baking surfaces. This multipurpose baking tool is bound to make every cookie recipe easier, and you’ll look like a real pro using one in your own kitchen.

2. Bowl Scraper

The trick to scraping sticky cookie batter out of a mixer or bowl is a bowl scraper. The best scraper will be stiff enough to easily maneuver the dough, but flexible enough to ensure we get every last drop of homemade dough or icing out of the bowl. Nothing goes to waste at the COOKIE…Take a Bite! bakery. 

3. Pastry Brush

Baking is definitely an art form and any cookie artist will tell you how important a good pastry brush really is to create the perfect cookie. At COOKIE…Take a Bite! we use this trusty tool to perfectly apply our homemade glazes to cookies like our famous Tequila Lime Twist.

4. Micro Zester

With this essential kitchen gadget, we can easily zest all our citrus fruits and other key ingredients for the perfect amount of flavoring every time. Without our micro zester, our award-winning Lemon Moon™ cookies wouldn’t be possible.

5. Peeler

At COOKIE… Take a Bite! we use a lot of locally harvested fruits to create our favorite seasonal cookie flavors. A trusty peeler with a large surface area is a must-have baking tool to easily peel things like the apples we use in our new seasonal Gravenstein Apple Streusel Cookie.

6. Ice Cream Scoop

How do you get a perfectly round cookie? The secret is out! Scooping dough with an ice cream scooper is the best way to get perfectly round cookies, every time. With a small ice cream scoop, all your cookies will be uniform in size and shape with little effort! 

Pro baking tip: very lightly coat the scooper in oil first so the dough never sticks!

7. Small Offset Spatula

A small offset spatula is every cookie baker’s secret weapon. From easily removing cookies off of the baking pan to delicately smoothing icing on freshly baked cookies, this little tool always comes in handy. Our delicate Chai Shortbread Square cookies are effortlessly served fresh out of the oven thanks to this essential baking utensil.

8. Butter Knives

You can never have too many butter knives in your baking kit, and chances are you already have a few of these in your utensil drawer. We use these common kitchen tools in almost every step when baking our gourmet cookies. From holding down sheet trays, or scooping out small dry ingredients like spices, the butter knife is truly a cookie baker’s best friend.

4 Tips for Zero Waste Baking from COOKIE… Take a Bite!

homemade gourmet cookies from COOKIE... Take a Bite!

How We Reduce Food Waste One Cookie at a Time!

It is estimated that 80 billion pounds of food go to waste in the U.S. every year. At COOKIE… Take a Bite! we aim to produce as little waste as possible while baking our gourmet cookies. With zero-waste baking recipes and practices, we are able to help protect our planet by reducing our food waste, while also serving our community delectable cookies.

What is Zero Waste Baking?

Zero waste baking is a more eco-friendly and sustainable approach to creating delicious baked goods. With thoughtful ingredient sourcing and creative reuse and repurposing, our cookie bakery is able to limit our waste production significantly!

Zero Waste Cookie Baking Tips

Here are some of our favorite ways we reduce our food waste while baking our gourmet cookies at our Santa Rosa bakery!

1. Buy Local Ingredients

We are proud to work with many local Sonoma County businesses. When you shop locally, you know you are getting the freshest ingredients directly from the vendor. These ingredients are often picked, harvested, or produced the day before — or even the same morning — that we use them in our cookie recipes. 

Straus Family Creamery is family-owned-and-operated in Petaluma and has been producing 100% certified organic dairy products since 1994. We infuse their premium butter combined with mint from our garden to make our Mint Chocolate Kiss Cookie.

The organic flour we use in our cookies is produced by Central Milling out of Petaluma, as well. They have provided artisan-milled grain and flour to local bakers for over 150 years. Our Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie would not be the same crispy-edged, gooey-centered treat it is without their premium flour.

2. Repurpose Leftovers

We rarely have leftovers at COOKIE… Take a Bite! But when we find ourselves with byproducts we always make the most of them. In fact, some of our bakery’s most famous flavors are made possible by using byproducts. 

We use the juice of our locally grown lemons to make the glaze for our award-winning Lemon Moon Cookies.

We make vanilla-infused salt out of scrapped bean pods for our Harvest Fair Best of Show Tequila Lime Twist Cookies.

3. Bake With Seasonal Ingredients

Our cookie flavors are always evolving based on which special ingredients are in season at the time. By purchasing local ingredients that are in season, we end up with less food waste because they are fresh and readily available. They didn’t have to travel here from out of the area, and will therefore have a longer shelf life and can be purchased in more recipe-appropriate quantities. 

Our new summertime favorite Gravenstein Apple Streusel Cookie features the famous Gravenstein apples from our neighbors in Sebastopol.

Another seasonal favorite is our Raspberry Chocolate Splash Cookie, featuring our homemade raspberry puree glaze made with seasonal berries.

4. Bake Cookies from Scratch

Baking our cookies from scratch means we have much less packaging waste to dispose of. By making our own icing, dough, and crafting the specialty ingredients that make our cookies so decadent, we are able to greatly reduce the amount of waste our bakery produces. 

Don’t miss out on our Plum Jam Thumbprint Cookies made with our own homemade jam or our new Grapefruit & Campari Swirl Cookie are topped with a drizzle of our house-made Campari and grapefruit glaze. You won’t find these handmade creations anywhere other than COOKIE…Take a Bite!

Enjoy Organic Cookies Handmade in Sonoma County from COOKIE… Take a Bite!

At COOKIE…take a bite!, our gourmet artisan cookies are handcrafted daily and made with premium organic ingredients from Sonoma County. We are proud to be doing our part to reduce food waste in our bakery while continuing to provide our loyal customers with fresh delicious cookies every day.

The Ultimate Sonoma County Wine and Cookie Pairing Guide

wine and cookie pairing

Sample the Flavors of Sonoma County with These Perfect Cookie and Wine Pairings 

When you find cookies and wine that really complement each other, it elevates both, creating the ultimate tasting experience. Here is your ultimate dessert guide to pairing our favorite cookie flavors from COOKIE… take a bite! with some of Sonoma County’s most popular style wines!

Tips for Pairing Cookies and Wine

A good general rule of thumb when pairing wine and cookies is: the darker the dessert, the darker the wine! In general, if you are looking to pair a delicate sugar cookie with the perfect wine, a crisp white will complement it best. Similarly, a dark chocolate cookie will pair well with a rich dark red wine. 

What Cookie Pairs Best With a Rosé?

A rosé is a refreshing spin on a drier style of wine. The primary flavors you taste in a rosé will be similar to red fruits, light notes of citrus and melon, and, of course, florals.

zest tea cookie

At COOKIE… take a bite! we suggest pairing your bottle of rosé with our rich and Zesty Tea Cookie. The hints of fresh-picked lemons and pink peppercorns create the perfect sweet and savory melody to combine with a local rosé.

Our Wine Pick: Three Sticks Winery, Sonoma 2017 Casteñada Rosé

What Cookies Pair Best With a White Wine?

Different styles of white wine include Chardonnay, Savion Blanc, Pinot Grigio, and many more. Depending on the style of white wine, the flavors can vary from crisp and citrusy to medium-bodied and creamy. 

Light white wines will usually feature more citrus fruits and melon flavors. Our signature Lemon Moon cookies deliver a delicately tangy flavor from fresh-picked lemons, combined with a creamy sweetness perfect for pairing with a light, crisp white wine.

Our Wine Pick: Three Sticks Winery, Sonoma 2018 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Chardonnay 

chai shortbread cookie

A medium style white will have a more buttery cream or nutty undertone, making our Chia Shortbread cookie a perfect pairing. The sweet buttery flavor combined with the warm spices accent the deep oak flavors found in a lot of richer white wines.

Our Wine Pick: A Sonoma County Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc

What Cookie Pairs Best With a Red Wine?

Red wines may have the largest selection of styles, and flavor palettes, but that’s what makes them so perfect for dessert pairings! Reds can vary in color from bright crimson, deep purples, pale ruby hues, and everything in between. This also grants red wines a very wide variety of flavors, ranging from fruits, flowers, herbs, and spices, to more earthy characteristics. 

sonoma county trekker cookie

Our award-winning Sonoma Trekker cookie has the perfect combinations of crunch and tangy flavor. This makes it an ideal pairing with a zippy red wine.

Our Wine Pick: Three Sticks Winery, 2018 Sta. Rita Hills, “The James” Pinot Noir

double chocolate cherry cookie

Our luscious Chocolate Cherry Drop cookie has a delicate chocolate center with hints of sweet cherries making it a great treat to pair with a Sonoma Pinot Noir.

Our Wine Pick: Three Sticks Winery, 2018 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

ginger honey snap cookie

With a warm touch of rich spices, our Ginger Honey Snap cookie brings out the gorgeous notes and texture of many red wines.

Our Wine Pick: Three Sticks Winery, 2018 PFV Estate Pinot Noir

Enjoy a Variety with Our Wine Pairing Cookie Tin

Fresh from the Oven: Recent Reflections from the COOKIE…Take a Bite! Bakery

How We’re Moving Forward as a Small Cookie Bakery During a Pandemic

With support from Sonoma Family Meal, local companies like Traditional Medicinals, Straus Organic Creamery, Oliver’s Market, and most importantly our amazing customers and family, we survived the worst of the economic hit and now we are ready to move forward doing what we do best!
