Today I am sharing one of my favorite kitchen gadgets with you friends. This gadget is one that I resisted getting for years....for years people....because I was convinced I could get along fine without. Then one day I caved, while at Walmart. I picked up this goodie and have never looked back.
Today I'm talking about my Oneida Cookie Dough Scoop. Friends, I feel a little guilty because I should have shared this gem with you quite a while ago, but time got away from me. You know how that old story goes...
I got my cookie scoop probably a year or so ago. I was seeing all these beautifully shaped cookies on Pinterest and I wanted to know what these mamas were using that I wasn't. I realized that a big difference was how they were getting their dough on the pans. I was using this two spoon technique. It was a bit messy and a smidge on the time consuming part. Once I realized that a cookie dough scoop could make my baking process easier, I was first in line for this gadget.
I snagged mine from Wal-Mart for under $7. It makes scooping out the dough so easy. It has a trigger handle that allows the dough to come out in a happy little ball. My cookies now plump up and are pretty little circles.
This little gem has made cookie making an absolute cinch, so if you've been on the fence I'm here to tell you that you should jump. Jump over and get yourself a cookie scoop. Your cookies will thank you.
Now I want to know what your favorite cooking gadgets are...do you use a muffin scoop? Are they as great as they look? Let me know friends :)
