It’s Tip Friday on Marilyn’s Treats. And todays tip is Scooping cookie dough!
There are two widely used methods to do this: using two spoons, or with a cookie scoop (also known as a disher). The cookie scoop results are more consistent, and it’s a quicker way to get the job done. Fill a spoon halfway with a stiff dough or icing. Using another spoon of the same size, scrape the dough off the first spoon onto the baking sheet.
Scoop the dough against the side of the bowl, using the lip of the bowl to level off the bottom, then squeeze the scoop’s handle to release the dough onto a baking sheet. When dough begins to stick in the scoop, rinse scoop with warm water.
