So I've borrowed my mother's Kithcen Aid stand mixer for all the icing I've been making for my cake course. I am wondering if I can use this mixer to make NFSC? Or will the dough be too thick?

Sure can....I couldn't imagine making my sugar cookies without it.

Yup! Start off by using the paddle attachment to cream the sugar/butter, eggs, etc. After adding some of the flour and when it starts getting harder to mix, switch over to the dough hook to incorporate the rest of the flour.

Have fun!

I do it all with the paddle. Just add the flour slowly because you may not need all of it. Learned that the hard way when i got crumbly dough.

Thanks everyone! I will add the flour slowly because I forgot to take the dough hook with me. I can't believe I use to do it by hand all the time... icon_smile.gif

There were quite a number of years after i got married where i was doing all my mixing either by hand or with a hand mixer. Then my husband bought me a KA as a gift and i could not believe the diff!! I could never ever go back.
You really don't need the dough hook. Paddle is enough for a good cookie dough.

I got a small Kitchenaid it's the 4.5 qt, it is about 9 years old and I make a batch of nfsc, and I have the pro600 (6qt.) and I can make 1-1/2 batches in it. No sweat...
