How to Make Perfectly Round-Shaped Cookies

Who doesn't like freshly baked and warm cookies? Fresh-baked cookies has always been a big hit in our household. Cookies are simply the best little sweets but making them with great results can be tricky! I've baked dozens of cookies for years and never really paid attention to the details. I just bake them no matter what size or shape as long as they're not burnt.
I never thought that I could make such perfectly round shaped cookies. Boy, I wish I have known the tricks before! The process is actually pretty easy. I'll show you how.
I conventionally use the cookie mix instead of making from scratch. It's way cheaper that way. Let's start with 3 simple recipes: Cookie Mix, 1 Egg, and 1/2 cup butter.
Using a medium deep bowl, crack the egg and mix it with melted butter.
Pour down the cookie mix.
Combine well until soft dough is formed.
Next, drop dough by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet at least an inch or so apart.
And roll the dough into smooth balls.
Now grab a drinking glass and lightly push down with the bottom of the glass on top of the dough ball.
Repeat the process until all dough balls are flattened.
In case the dough sticks on the glass, just gently scrape it with a butter knife.

Then bake at 375 F for 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown.
Make sure to cool the cookies for 2 minutes before removing from the sheet. 
The whole process was so easy and quick! With this method, you can simply bake your cookies with great results: Perfectly Round and Uniform.
