DROP COOKIES

Drop cookies, unlike stamped cookies, are merely “dropped” on the baking sheet. Usually the dough is measured out in level tablespoonfuls, leaving space on the cookie sheet to allow for the cookies to spread while baking. Sometimes a teaspoon is used for dropping the dough, but if a round measuring tablespoon is filled level full, then pushed out on the sheet with a spatula, a cookie of nice round shape results.

Drop cookies are often of the soft, moist, cake-like kind though some types flatten during baking to make a crisp, thin cookie. Drop cookies may be glazed or frosted and decorated for an especially attractive appearance.
