Cookie dough scoops are great to have to make sure all your cookies are uniform in size.
Cookie scoops come in three sizes: small, medium, and large.
A small size cookie scoop is sometimes referred to as a teaspoon size scoop. It actually holds about 2 teaspoons dough.
A medium size scoop can also be called a tablespoon scoop. It holds just over 1-1/2 Tablespoons dough.
A large size scoop is made for making bigger cookies. It holds 3 Tablespoons dough.
Sometimes you will be making jumbo size cookies. The recipe will specify using a 1/4 cup dough per cookie. In these cases, you can use an ice cream scoop instead of a measuring cup.
I love my cookie scoops.
They aren't essential, but they are less messy and very convenient.
The cookies come out great looking every time too.
