Formed by spooning mounds of soft dough onto baking sheets, these cookies are some of the simplest to make.
• Ensure even baking by dropping the same amount of dough for each cookie. Use a measuring spoon to scoop the dough, then push it onto the baking sheet with your finger or another spoon.
• For a one-handed option, use a cookie scoop (available at kitchenware stores), which looks like a small ice cream scoop. These gadgets come in a variety of sizes, from one teaspoon up to several tablespoons.
• Coat whatever you use to scoop the dough with cooking spray first to encourage easy release.
• There's no need to flatten the cookies; they will spread and flatten as they bake.
