Do you use your KA mixer to make your cookie dough?

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
When you make a large batch of cookie dough like the NFSC recipe, do you use your Kitchenaid Mixer (or a similar one) to make your dough? And if so, which attachment do you use? Paddle? Hook?

And also, has anyone tried "The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies" recipe? I'ts from the allrecipes website. How was it?

Thanks so much for all of your help.

I use my KA for the NFSC all the time with the paddle attachment. I tried a double recipe once and it was a mess so I stick with one recipe at a time.

I use also use my KitchenAid with the paddle attachment for sugar cookies. I double batches all the time and they come out great.

I make several batches of cookies every year for the holidays as gifts and my KA has saved my life! I make ALL my cookie doughs with it - using the paddle attachment - and I don't think I could continue doing so many cookies if I had to keep using my hand mixer.

I was given a paddle attachment last year that has a rubber spatula thing on all the blades so it scrapes the sides of the bowl while it mixes and it's AWESOME! No more stopping in the middle of mixing to scrape down the bowl! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

I don't use the NFSC recipe, but I do use my KA for sugar cookie dough. I've used both the paddle and dough and both seem to work equally well.

I just looked at the NFSC recipe. The sugar cookie recipe I use is slightly different than one-half of the NFSC recipe. I have doubled and tripled the recipe that I use, which has 3C of flour in the original recipe. Even though I have the Pro 600, I have never tried mixing 12 C of flour even though it says that it can handle it.

Sorry for the confusion icon_redface.gif

I busted two of my blade beaters by doing cookie dough..because I'm lazy and I throw in the chocolate chips at the end and give it a spin. OOPS! The plastic doesn't hold up! I was pretty mad at myself for breaking $60 worth of beater blades. So now I only have one blade left for two mixers. I still have the original kitchenaid ones though.

Wow - I put my chocolate chips and walnuts in all the time and mix with my KA and so far no breaking parts! Maybe I should quit doing that while I'm ahead. icon_surprised.gif

You know, tho, my regular paddle attachment is metal, it's not plastic, but my scraper paddle is plastic so maybe I should just switch to the regular paddle for really thick cookie doughs.

Yeah the regular metal paddle is fine, but the Beater Blade that I have is clear plastic and I broke two so far, up at the base where it attaches. Kind of expensive to keep doing that!

I use my paddle attachment, then mix at the very end by hand.
