You eyeball cookie dough portions

THE RESULT: Uneven results.

THE FIX: Besides producing cookies that aren’t uniform, unevenly portioned dough bakes at different rates, potentially leaving you with some cookies that are overdone while others are still soft and doughy. A small ice-cream scoop is a helpful tool if you bake cookies often. It allows you to portion the dough quickly and evenly.
