It’s that time of year, when we all start stocking up on baking supplies, hoarding pumpkin puree cans like it’s going to save our lives, and purchasing containers that would making great shipping vessels for the holidays. I’m not one to fall behind, so this week I started making some cookie doughs, freezing them, and having them ready to ship come the time.

This past week I’ve been testing out the new EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale and as soon as I received it, I had to compare it to my trusty Escali scale. Quickly, I instagramed THIS picture and it’s obvious; my Escali scale looks like a baby’s scale next to the brand new EatSmart Scale!You might ask, does size matter? Not always of course, but in this case, having a larger scale makes it easier to measure ingredients in large bowls that normally don’t fit on the scale, or cover up the screen, making it impossible to work with.

The EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale is just that, elite. With a capacity of up to 15 pounds (and honestly, at home baking rarely reaches that much at one time!), this might just be the only scale you need. Measures in grams, ounces, and pounds – which is why it’s great for holiday baking! I also love how sleek looking it is, perfect appliance to leave out on the counter.

When I created this recipe, it was created in cups and teaspoons at first. This time around, I converted mostly everything to ounces using this scale, making it a recipe that is consistent always and I can look back on ten years from now and know that since it was scaled in weight measurements, the proportions will always be the same and the results will be identical at all times.


Now, about these cookies. Yes, they are oatmeal cookies but you won’t see a raisin in sight! This is a great base recipe that allows you to add a few fixings like dried coconut, cranberries, or extra chocolate chips. Make sure to cream your butter and sugars for a good five minutes to get that great incorporation of ingredients. Just don’t go longer than that, because cookies that are over mixed tend to spread too much!

Also, if you’re interested in purchasing this EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale, be sure to head on over to Amazon and grab one. They make the perfect gift for the baker or cook in your life. Follow EatSmart Products on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest for new recipes, product updates, and more!
