What are some baking staples I should have on hand for these fun summer cookies recipes?
You should always have things like flour, baking soda, sugar, powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla on hand when you plan to do a lot of baking.
Some others are things like chocolate chips, food coloring, eggs, milk, and even bananas. Applesauce is a good replacement for things like oil and eggs when baking so keep some of that on hand too in case you run out of a staple ingredient.
For these cookies for summer you should also have some fun cookie cutters on hand, baking sheets, and even parchment paper and cooling racks will come in handy.
A kid or two to do some taste testing wouldn’t be bad either!
