Fun new kitchen toy

I finally got something I’ve wanted for a long time (from Mom, for my birthday, which is next week): a silicone beater blade for the stand mixer. Hurray! I highly recommend this if you have a stand mixer and use it for cookies. You don’t need to scrape the sides down with a spatula, and there’s no mysterious little divot of flour left on the bottom. The photo shows butter and sugar being mixed together; the effect is even more impressive once you add the flour and the dough is a bit heftier — the blade really cleans the sides of the bowl.

Like I need another excuse to make cookies.

    He’ll love it! It’s very satisfying. And dishwasher safe!
