How To Scoop The Perfect Cookie

How To Scoop The Perfect Cookie

I have been getting a lot of questions lately about how I scoop my cookie dough to make the perfect sized cookies. So I thought I would show you exactly what I do every time I make cookies and I even made it super easy for you by including a Step-by-Step guide to scooping the perfect cookie.

Here is how I scoop the perfect cookie after I have made my cookie dough:

STEP 1: I use a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop but if you don’t have a cookie scoop you can also use a 1 Tablespoon measuring spoon.

STEP 2 & STEP 3: I use my cookie scoop or a measuring spoon, and I scoop 2 cookie dough scoops into my hand which equals 2 Tablespoons of cookie dough for each cookie dough ball.

STEP 4: I roll the dough into a ball.

STEP 5: After that, I slightly press down on the ball to form a mini “hockey puck”.

STEP 6: I then place my cookie dough “hockey puck” onto my prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and bake my cookies as directed in my recipe.

And that’s it….you will have the PERFECT COOKIE!

So now that you know how to scoop the perfect cookie, it’s time to bake some COOKIES! ❤

    Great! I always mess up the scooping part haha it’s always either too big or too small

    Being that I’m not exactly a master baker (I lean more towards the savory) this is perfect for me! I’m always wondering how to make the most perfectly shaped cookies!
