For moist and sticky cookie dough I recommend you use a bowl of warm water. First of all, dip your scoop into the warm water bath. Then, sample out the cookie dough. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the scoop. Another options is to use two silicone spoons. This makes the process even easier. Dip the silicone spoons into hot water, use one of the spoon to push out the batter from one spoon to the cookie tray.
