Back-to-school often means baking lots of cookies, or at least it did when I was a child. Please, tell me schools still hold bake sales and children still bring cupcakes in for their birthdays. Okay, phew.
Here's a great tool for the mom or dad pressed with the task of baking lots of cookies at once: a collapsible, four-tier cooling rack for cookie sheets. It's strong, holds four trays of baked treats, and when you're done, it folds down into a slender 1-inch wide package that can be slipped into a cabinet.
