I actually found a use for these tiny little measuring spoons during my latest round of recipe testing. It’s best to make the smallest batches possible when testing in order to keep too many ingredients from going to waste. Since my shortbread cookies batches were so small, my regular measuring spoons were just too big for such precise measurements, especially when using stronger spices. I wanted to add ground cloves to a brown sugar shortbread, for example, and the 1/8 teaspoon I tried first was just way too much. I miraculously found these tiny spoons, a gift from many years ago, way in the back of my kitchen drawer. The spoon labeled “dash” is exactly 1/16 teaspoon, so I gave that a shot, but the cloves were still too strong. So I went all the way down to “smidgen”, a mere 1/32 teaspoon…and perfect! I am so glad I actually kept these things, which I admit I thought I would never use.
