Sprinkles For Breakfast Baking Tips How to Make Perfectly Round Cookies Every Single Time

How to Make Perfectly Round Cookies Every Single Time

Ever made cookies that come out looking like they took on a life of their own in the oven? Like NONE of them are even close of being round.

But you did everything right?! You used a cookie scoop, an oven thermometer, room temp baking sheets, parchment paper and the precise measurements of the ingredients. WTF happened?!

Honestly…I don’t know. I mean, we could sit here and go over everything again and try to figure out where it all went wrong. But that feels like a lot of energy. And honestly, I think sometimes the cookies just don’t want to be round. They are like teenagers – there is literally no reason to be annoying, and they do it anyway.

But the good news is, even though I can’t tell you WHY this happened, I do have a one size fits all solution for you. It’s a round cookie cutter. Ok, I lied about the one size thing. The size of the cutter actually depends on the size of the cookie. So I like to keep a few different sizes around the kitchen.

All you have to do is have the cookie cutter ready to go RIGHT when the cookies come out of the oven. The timing of this is very important. If you wait too long, this method won’t work. So, RIGHT when you pull the cookies out, you place the cutter over the cookie (it should be about 1/4″ bigger than the cookie itself) and then you just make a large circular motion so the edge of the cookie comes in contact with the cutter. And that’s it. You have perfectly round cookies.

And if that makes no sense to you…here is a video that shows you exactly how it’s done!
