If you are still making cookies by pushing them off a teaspoon from your silverware drawer or scooping them out with you tablespoon measure you need to consider cookie scoops… actually… you need to consider one in every size – here’s why.
I love my scoops that I have left from my restaurant. I got them at a restaurant supply and they are several different sizes. One is perfect for filling cupcake and muffin cups, one is perfect for making that gorgeous mound of mashed potatoes or rice on a plate… you can get them in every size and you will be surprised how much you use all of them.
The cookie scoops are really indispensable because they allow you to make your cookies all the same size. It may not sound like a big deal — after all they are homemade and you don’t want them to look like a machine made them — but it is. When the cookies are all uniform in size they all bake at the same rate. They all come out perfect at the same time.
Even if you are making the kind of cookies (like the lemon snaps below) that are shaped in your hands? Yeah, use a scoop for those, too.. All the same size. Every stinkin time. It is one of those things in life that you can count on.
Can you tell that I am a perfectionist?
For me, a cookie scoop is the only way I can create a recipe and know how many cookies it will yield — unless I taste test the batter a few too many times.

Oxo Good Grips is a company that I really like. Their products are dependable, high quality and affordable. Best of all they are easy and comfortable to use. The cookie scoops come in three sizes, and I’d get all three.
Holiday baking is just around the corner and you know you are gonna be making scads of cookies. You’ll be surprised at how much of a difference a good scoop will make.
