Pre-scooping Ice Cream
by Jesse Bluma
1. Make room for a cookie sheet in your freezer.
2. Remove ice cream from the freezer to temper--leave at room temperature for 8-10 minutes.
3. Cover a cookie sheet or baking pan (not a bowl) with plastic wrap.
4. Dip the Cuisipro Ice Cream Scoop into warm water, then dry with a towel.
5. Follow the directions on the scoop box to push and press the ice cream onto the sheet. Repeat the process for each scoop. If you are leaving the pre-scooped ice cream in the freezer for more than a couple hours you may wish to place the scoops into freezer bags on the cookie sheet to shelter from forming ice crystals.
6. Place the cookie sheet into the freezer. These servings will hold their shape in the freezer until you're ready to transfer them to bowls.
The Cuisipro Ice Cream Scoop is also a good tool for watermelon scoops.
