My new favourite utensil

Am I that far behind the times?  Do you all use these?  
I saw this suggestion on the Barefoot Contessa

My new Ice Cream Scoop
(that goop is destined to be Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins)
It scoopes the PERFECT amount into each muffin case with NO MESS!
SEE!  No mess and all the same size ready to go in the oven
Fresh out of the oven - all nice, plump and round!
And all the same size and shape - OK now I just sound a little anal?
I have posted the recipe on my recipe's page

oh my goodness, you are clever - I've never thought of doing that and usually get in a terrible mess with 2 spoons on the go! I need an ice cream scoop now !!
Thanks for popping by my place :-)

Ron says you should send at least 4 muffins from every batch to him for official taste testing! But there is the problem of the two-weeks in transit!!!!!

You are very clever and do have such great ideas for muffins. I must say that one of my favorites is lemon-poppyseed! YUM!!! Keep on baking your heart out!!!!!

I don't have your email address, so will use the blog. Thanks so much for getting your Mom to knitting those scarves! I just receive mine in the mail today. What a beautiful accessory. It will look lovely with my new gray outfit. I'm going to try it also with jeans and a jacket. Now that the weather is getting cooler, I'll be able to wear it often!

Yay - glad you got it - that seems quick? I have made two more since the one I posted! They are so quick, they really suit my knitting style (instant gratification) lol

I also believe in projects which offer some satisfaction in a short time. I've been working on a corded basket when I get a few minutes. They are great fun and use up loads of scraps and ugly fabric.

Oh my, those muffins look absolutely fantastic. My mouth is watering, I'm making a shopping list to get the ingredients today!

I think are my favourite - they stay nice and moist. Hope you enjoy them
