i found this wonderful gadget last year after christmas in one of the 75% off sales. my only guess is that it is "christmas-y" because it is red. i was so excited. i never would have bought it if it hadn't been on sale. now i can't imagine going back to the two spoon method. all my cookies come out the same size, shape and height, making for beautiful cookies and easier baking! needless to say - i love my cookie scoop!
the recipe shown is my absolute favorite cookie, peanut butter chocolate chip. simple and wonderful.
peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
3/4 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 c. chocolate chips (or more)
preheat to 350. beat the first 4 until well mixed and then blend in eggs and vanilla. mix in the dry ingredients. stir in the chocolate chips. drop on cookie sheets - using cookie scoop :-) - bake for 10-12 minutes.
