Hmmm . . . you really can't roll the dough into 1-inch balls with your hands, that's for sure. The dough is way too sticky, and that would have been a huge mess. I chose to use a 1" cookie scoop, which worked great. Here's the thing, these do not flatten as they cook. They are more like a muffin ball than a cookie really (as the recipe is written). Not a bad thing, just want those that are expecting "cookies" to be prepared. So, for the 2nd sheet that I baked, I dipped my fingers in flour and flattened them, so they would be more cookie-like, and also cook more evenly, as my first tray (the ball ones), were done on the outside, but slightly underdone in the middle. Worked better, but you could see some of the flour on the cookies, even after baking. 3rd sheet, I flattened again, but this time dipped my fingers in coconut oil first, which turned out to be the best of the 3 sheets. The look more like a pumpkin cookie! I got 34 cookies using the cookie scoop. They taste good (very dense), but not sure I'd make this one again.
