- If you are using apples or pears - cut the fruit in half, then rotate the melon ball tool around the centers to evenly dig out only the core
- For hors d'oeuvres - make mini meat balls using your favorite ground meat mixture. In a saute pan, brown the mini meat balls. You can serve the meat balls by themselves or in a sauce mixture.
- To make bite size cookies - instead of using the typical one inch cookie scoop, use the melon ball tool to make perfectly round mini cookies with your favorite cookie dough. Reduce your usual baking time by 1 to 2 minutes. The bite size cookies are great for snacks in the afternoon or evening when guests need a quick bite. They don't have to feel guilty about eating a whole large cookie.
- To serve sorbet in style - you can use scoops of different flavors and colors. Arrange them in small groups on a pan covered with parchment. Freeze until serving time.
