If you haven't used parchment paper, you should start! I use a medium cookie scoop and drop them into a bowl of sugar, roll them around and place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Then I flatten them a bit and cook them. I slide the paper off and let them cool a bit, then slide them onto a cooling rack. The bottoms are always perfect and the cookie scoop makes them the same size.
