10 Things You Need For Fall Baking

By  |  Comments

Yay! Fall is coming…. well is not as close as I wish it was but that doesn’t mean you can’t start getting all what you need for this coming season. The Kitchen shares this great 10 Things You Need For Fall Baking. If you are starting in all this housewife “business”,  this list will be a great help to get you started on the things you will need, get ready because it’s coming.  WOo HOO!


1. Balloon Whisk: Long gone are the days where I busted out a hand sifter. More often than not, using a whisk is my preferred method of combining dry ingredients before they get the liquid ones added to them. A good whick will break up clumps and sift things through without dirtying something larger. It’s also greatly needed to make fillings of all sorts and finding one that won’t get water stuck down in the handle is a plus!

2. Pie Weights: You can either purchase true pie weights or simply use dry beans instead. I usually use the later. Just make sure to keep your pie beans separate from your other beans. After several trips through the oven, they’re not exactly good eats, but they are inexpensive and get into all the nooks and crannies of your dough (why does that sound so dirty?) without leaving dents in it.

3. A Good Spatula: I feel as though you my spatula and I could have our own cheesy commercial together. We’d be holding hands and playing ring around the rosey together while the latest hip trendy song played in the background. I have along blade Kitchenaid spatula that’s specially made to reach the bottom of the Kitchenaid mixer bowl without getting the handle or your hands dirty and is tapered to scrape the bowl with one single swoop.

4. Cookie Scoop: Although I’m pretty decent at eyeballing the same size over and over again, once you start nearing the end of your cookie dough, things seem to get a little out of shape. You’re tired of standing, the latest episode of Mad Men on DVR is calling your name and all you really want to do is grab a glass of milk and enjoy a tasty snack fresh from the oven. A cookie scoop makes the same size over and over and over again, ensuring even baking time without fail every time you bake. Awesome.

5. Cookie Sheets: My life changed once I stopped trying to figure out which cookie sheet worked the best from my local big box retailers. Was it the kind with air inside? What about dark ones? Light ones? Ones with handles? Once I finally gave in and purchased professional half and quarter sheet pans my baking world changed forever. No more warping pans, they cook evenly and all my oven times will forever be constant.

6. Parchment Paper: I’ve recently mentioned my love for parchment paper in flat sheets, but no matter how you buy it, this will be the difference between awesome baked goods and ho hum ones. Not only does it allow you to remove cookies from the pan (so they don’t over bake) without actually doing any damage to them,parchment paper makes cakes come out clean and scones with slightly browned bottoms.

7. Oven Thermometer: Although most things can be cooked a little longer at a little lower temperature, when your oven has the opposite problem (especially when you’re trying out a new recipe) things can end poorly. No one wants to spend money on ingredients just to have them wasted when they get burned. An oven thermometer will help regulate things and a pizza stone or unglazed tile in the bottom of the oven will help retain heat when you open the door to check on things.
