Rolling out dough, cutting them with a cookie cutter and transferring the cookies to a cookie sheet is time-consuming. Here is another way to get uniform, round cookies with less effort.
Mix the cookie dough following your recipe.
Use a spoon to remove small hunks of cookie dough from the mixing bowl.
Remove the dough from the spoon using your hands and roll it into a 1-inch-diameter ball.
Place these balls methodically on the cookie sheet. Leave room around each one so that they are not touching.
Tear a piece of wax paper that is the size of your cookie sheet and lay it over the balls of cookie dough.
Press a glass with a flat bottom over each ball to flatten the dough.
If you have trouble with the cookie dough sticking on a spoon, dip the spoon in milk first.
Add or remove dough to the balls so that they all come out approximately 1 inch in diameter after rolling.
