hello

its really hard for me to find cookie scoops down here (we dont even say cookies, we say biscuits or bickies) and im looking online and wondering what would be the better friendly sized scoop to buy

im not looking to make huge sized cookies - just nice normal bake friendly sizes so what do you use?

many thanks

Well, I love the one I have, but I just looked and it has no indication of size on it. I bought it at Williams Sonoma years ago, so I have no idea what to tell you. I hope someone else is more help than I've been! icon_redface.gif

Having managed a cookie store in the past, I can tell you that the 1 Tbsp scoop is the standard cookie size. This, depending on what kind of cookie dough you're using and how much you fill the scoop, will give you a 2 1/2" to 3" diameter cookie.

I just got a 1 Tbsp scoop as a gift and i just love it. For years i was using a teaspoon from my silverware, but when i started using the scoop, i could never go back.

I have 3 scoops- 1T, 2T, and 3T. The 1T is perfect for normal-sized cookies and peanut butter when I am counting my WW points, the 2T makes a great "gourmet" cookie, and the 3T is a great monster cookie, and the perfect size for scooping cupcake/muffin batter into tins.

Mine are all Pampered Chef. I just bought my daughters some at WalMart (Oneida brand).

I too use the 1T and 2T scoops for The Pampered Chef. I love them. I personally rather cookies with the 2T but my DH like the 1T so that's what I usually do.

Mine is the 1T size. It makes perfect sized cookies for my kids and a 2 bite cookie for me. I love using the scoop vs a spoon from the flatware. I use it for everything!
