Because I don’t have enough hobbies, I bought myself an early Christmas gift from Mr. Diva. And yes, it is BRONZE to match my kitchen. Determined to justify this purchase, I proceeded to make some sugar cookies.
The first Sugar Cookie recipe I used was from the Kitchenaid Mixer booklet that came with the mixer. Conclusion: Rock hard bland cookies. Total FAIL!
Next up, I mixed up at batch from a recipe at Allrecipes.com which received great reviews. These cookies were at least edible, but not yummy like I had hoped. Another FAIL!
I’m going to try this recipe from Moms Who Think which uses half-n-half and this recipe from The Kitchn which adds lemon zest, almond extract and cream cheese. I’ll let you know how they turn out. Do you have a great Sugar Cookie recipe?
On a brighter note, I made homemade mashed potatoes for the first time in my life. The mixer whipped them up effortlessly! They were delicious!
What do you make in your mixer? I need ideas so my mixer doesn’t become a heavy paperweight (like my crock pot) on my kitchen countertop.
