HERE’S THE SCOOP
Today, I’m continuing with KITCHEN TOOLS I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT. Today’s feature is melon ball scoops.
I’m sure most of you know about these fabulous little helpers, but there may be a “new” cook or two out there who doesn’t.
I’ve gotta tell you, I use these more for baking than I do melons. That’s right, I use them for cookie dough. As you can see, I have two sizes. When you use them to scoop your cookie batter, they serve two purposes.
First, you get to keep your hands clean. I love that. Secondly, your cookies will come out all about the same size. This is especially nice if you’re making up little cookie gift bags for teachers, friends, or as party favors.
I also use them when I’m making Pecan Tassies. I use the small scoop to fill the pastry and it gives me just the right amount every single time.
Maybe you already use melon ball scoops for something other than melons and cookies. If you do, I’d love to hear from you.
Oh, currently, along with my sister, Sugarpie, I’m working on a dessert cookbook. From time to time, I’ll share a recipe with you.
If you have a favorite “Sweet Thang” you’d like to share with me, please do so. I may include it in the cookbook…giving you credit of course.
