As you all know I love to bake! It’s my new hobby and I’ve especially taken up cookie decorating. I’ve bought got knows how many cookie cutters and for the longest time I was not able to use them because I did not have the proper mixer to get the recipes for the icing and cookie dough right. I also love to bake cakes, bread, and cupcakes especially during the holidays and birthdays. I’m excited that last month I received a 5 quart white Kitchenaid Mixer as a gift last month as a surprise from my Fiance as he couldn’t take my complaining anymore that I could not bake the cookies I so was desperate to bake. As you can see I wanted to do some geeky cookie baking with my new AMAZING KitchenAid. I have been wanting one of these since I was a little girl so it was almost like a dream come true to get one as a gift.
I couldn’t wait to put my brand new KitchenAid Mixer to work.
I managed to make everything I needed to make perfectly with my KitchenAid and here are how my cookies came out. The cookies would not look like this if it wasn’t for my KitchenAid Mixer.
