    Pumpkin shortbread! I’ve been moving and haven’t been able to bake at all, so I’ve been missing out on all the seasonal pumpkin fun.

    My wife just discovered that she has Celiac Disease. The first thing I would make with a new KitchenAid mixer is gluten-free versions of her favorite breads.

    For some reason, snicker-doodle cookies sounds really good right now, so they would be first!

    A big batch of homemade whoppie pies….lots of them for all the family and friends. I even search and put them in the wax paper bags just like my grandmother did when I was so young!

    Caitlin says:

    Benthe says:

    I’d definitely go for bread. Can’t do that right now because my mixer. Well, don’t talk about that. Bread’s heavy and this one’s perfect for it!

  22. 22
    Krista says:

    Sugar cookies! No, bread! No, wait! Ummm– meringue! No–my great-grandmother’s seven-minute icing! No…actually, it would be my Latvian Grandma’s ‘pipparkukas’, like German pfefferkuchen, like American gingerbread cookies but spicier and richer and with a snap of flavor and texture what comes from a super-stiff dough that you age for a month. Ohhhh yeah baby. Man garsho pipparkuukas!

  23. 23
    Csilla says:

    Jana says:

    Cookies, no doubt about that. At work I’m known as the Cookie Fairy because I bring cookies for everybody on Mondays. I hope they never find out that I benefit just as much from this… every cookie someone else eats won’t end up on my hips. 😉

    Chad Hancock says:

    I am definitely going to make the oreo and peanut butter brownie cakes you posted a few weeks ago. They are by far the tastiest looking thing I’ve ever seen, but I haven’t been able to make them yet because I don’t have a mixer. 🙁

    Keep up the great work!

  35. 35
    Christine says:

    I will definitely make a Japanese-style cheesecake! The recipe requires beating egg whites to form high peaks, so this would save my arm from going numb as it usually does from holding a hand mixer for too long! 😛

  36. 36
    Iris says:

    A red velvet cake, there not sold here in Europe, so I have to make them myself
