Man .. these are OATY .. hehe

Could use more Raisins .. 4oz does not seem much in the cookies. I think I'll make it 6oz, maybe 8oz next time. And I think I need Dark B. Sugar .. to add more flavor & possibly more chewy moistness .. I only had Light Brown Sugar.

I am seriously thinking of getting one of those Silicone Spatula Flat Beaters .. would make mixing just that more EZ'er .. so I don't have to stop & scrape the bowl.

They sure look good!

How do you like the new mixer? What did it cost you, if I might ask?

The cookies tasted great, mind you very oaty because of the Roasted Oat Flour

I love the new mixer, it's much better than the "Professional 6" clunker I got two months ago. That thing was loud, and I could not find replacement parts for it. I got my K45SS from a very nice seller on Craigslist for $110, shipped from Portland, OR .. to me in Anacortes, WA.

I made some of Alton Browns "The Puffy" chocolate chip cookies with it. But I messed up and they came out ultra flat. I did not have Cake flour just AP. I used a full package of 12oz CCs (recipe called only for 8oz/2 cups). And prolly the biggest reason why mine came up flat .. I used baking SODA instead of baking POWDER.

I think I am gona try making Cinnamon Rolls next (but follow recipe correctly )

Joshua, when I need brown sugar (light or dark), I just mix white sugar with some molasses.

On the cinnamon buns, I took note of what they do at those mall cinnabon shops. Roll out the sweet dough, cover in brown sugar, cinnamon, thickly.......then I add LOTS of chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans). Roll them up, cut them, let them rise. They always turn out nice.

I have a KA from around 1983 or 1984ish--it says K45SS, still runs nice, *knock on wood*. I use it for breads, grinding meat and huge batches of cookies.

DARN, now I'm hungry.

I think it is time for me to say, I told you the old Hobart mixers were better quality than the new ones.

You got a good price on it. I am happy with my new one but if I saw a deal like that I might not be able to pass it up.

I got a vintage Kitchenaid 4-C at a garage sale this weekend for $5. It works great, but missing the bowl.

It might make a bit of a mess without a bowl.

I am sure you will find a bowl for it.
