How does Donna down the street always get her cookies so round and perfect? Probably with an OXO Medium Cookie Scoop ($14). The simple tool allows you to put consistently sized cookies on your baking tray. That's not just great appearance-wise, it ensures that they'll all need the same amount of time to cook so some don't come out with burnt edges. If you appreciate cookie dough as much as the finished product, you could always refer to the scoop simply as a "spoon." Just make sure to save some of that dough for the oven.
