Hello All! Another round of Mom Minutes is coming your way! My Mom, Earlene, has another great tip that I am passing onto all of you!
Have you ever wanted to get perfectly formed cookies, like those that you see in the mall, but never seem to be able to duplicate at home? My mom found the answer to this problem awhile back. She bought a small ice cream scoop (the kind that you would use to scoop out small, round balls of sherbet, watermelon, etc.) that had a releasing mechanism on it. So, she scoops out the cookie dough, and squeezes the handle, and a perfectly round-shaped ball of dough is left on the cookie sheet. After awhile, she discovered that companies actually make scoops that are called "cookie scoops!"
The above picture is almost duplicate to the one that she has at home. To locate one of these for your very own, you can browse Amazon (hint...use my Amazon gadget on the sidebar!) for cookie scoops. There are a lot of them, and you're sure to find one that you like! I personally like the red Wilson one. What do you think?
