Want to be able to make cookies without having to run to the grocery store at the last minute? The best way to do it is to have a majority of these ingredients on hand.

Use this list four ways. Begin by pulling out a couple of your favorite cookie recipes. Read over this list. Using the printing directions on this page and delete the ingredients you may never use. Print your revised list. Use it as a checklist for the ingredients you already have on hand. Print another copy to use at the grocery store, minus the ingredients already on hand. Tape another full ingredient list to the inside of your pantry door. Check items off as you use them. Add those items to your regular grocery list to keep the missing ingredients on hand.
