Ultimate Sugar Cookies, a recipe from KitchenAid®!

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Whether you're whipping up a batch of cookies for your child's class, or making dozens upon dozens for the annual exchange, baking tends to go more smoothly with the proper tools. And anyone who's ever used one will tell you that the KitchenAid Artisan mixer is the gold standard in kitchen appliances. Treat yourself before the holidays (you deserve it! And it helps with the baking, which means that everyone wins!), or put one on your wish list. I promise you'll be glad you did!
