Peanut Drop Cookies

A drop cookie is a dough that is dropped from a spoon onto the baking sheet. These days, I use a scoop that looks like a mini ice cream scoop because it gives me a perfectly rounded ball of dough. But as I was learning to bake from my mother, we used two spoons – one scooped the dough from the bowl and the other scraped it off that spoon and onto the baking sheet. I don’t expect there is really a huge advantage of one over the other and is probably personal preference which way you drop your cookies.

  1. We just got a cute little cookie scoop, but we really haven’t used it yet. Spoons are the best because you always get some dough on your fingers that you can lick when the cookies are in the oven. We’ve only used the mini scoop for portioning out edible cookie dough (no eggs in the dough).
