Cook’s Tips:

Bite-size, reduced-fat chocolate chip cookies can be substituted for the double chocolate chip cookies.

You’ll find the Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan is helpful in preparing all kinds of party foods, both sweet and savory. Kids, especially, love bite-size muffins, and the pan’s miniature cups make perfect molds for ever-popular gelatin snacks.

The Small Scoop is a practical tool for filling tart shells, scooping cookie doughs, making melon balls and forming meatballs.
