A few months ago I bought a cookie scoop (1 tablespoon size) because I was always wondering about them. If it was worth the money buying a scoop to make drop cookies or would doing it by hand be OK. Let me tell you it was awesome using it. Not only did the cookie come out pretty much uniform but my fingers were not covered in cookie dough like they usually get when I make drop cookies. I just made these cookies while my son was taking his nap...so not having my fingers covered in cookie dough is good in case he got up and I need to get him.
I think I might have to go out and buy the next size up because this one is great for small cookies but I think I would like them to be a little bit bigger the next time.
