    • Sara

      When I was little, I thought the only thing you could make in a mixer was chocolate chip cookies from scratch. I always loved to lick the beater because I loved cookie dough. I think that is what sparked my love for baking. So this Christmas, I will not only be baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch but an assortment of cookies for my family and friends!

    • Debbie

      About 4 years ago I decided that I would host “Cookie Day” at my home in hopes that our family could all have one day to come together and have fun. Well it was a huge success. The girls all making cookies and catching up and the guys trying to steal the dough whenever we weren’t looking! We had one year where we even had a dough fight. It was messy but alot of fun and everyone helped clean up the mess!! This Sunday, we will be coming together again and everyone is so excited!!

  • Fuzz

    My favorite thing to do with my kids is bake ‘ugly’ sugar cookies. I don’t care how they decorate them (hence, the ‘ugly’ factor), but it’s the time we share together.

    And besides, it’s always the ugliest cookies that taste the best.

    • Taren Kinebrew

      My favorite thing to do is bake lots of cakes and cookies for all those I love. So this calls for a speedy mixer. Everyone looks forward to receiving their sweet treats!

    I will be baking lots of cookies, we exchange trays with neighbors. Also make quick breads, cakes, & cake pops.

    I plan on baking an elf monkey cake for my 8 yr old niece – I usually bake her a monkey cake for her birthday (looks like a monkey w. chocolate cake peanut butter filling – oreo ears – licorce face) if I could post a pic I could – Its pretty cool – now have to figure a way to build a Santa hat onto it! Which is why I need that mixer for motivation!

  • Can’t resist KitchenAid :o) I love cooking with my bestfriend and she would love to use this to bake cookies with me !

    The mixer would come in extra handy around the holidays for making my homemade cinnamon rolls and various cookie recipes!
    Awesome giveaway!

  • I bake Red Velvet cakes for my brother’s for Christmas and I am making Whoopie pies for friends to give as gifts. I love to bake and just last week made Christmas cookies for my hair salon for a Santa treat after the Christmas parade.

  • Stacy B

    Ooohh La la! I would love to have this for holiday baking. I plan to make chocolate pecan cookies along with some traditional Christmas cookies & some bread baking too.

  • Liz

    I LOVE my kitchen aid mixer, and this would be the perfect gift for my mom! I have actually taken my mixer to her house before when I knew I would be baking. I might have turned into a mixer snob. 🙂

  • Andrea

    Definitely cupcakes, empanadas, & pie!

  • My favorite family recipe: Lebkuchen. We mix up the dough and let the anise and other spices release their flavors into the dough overnight. Then we gather for a family kitchen production: rolling, cutting the dough with Grandma’s cookie cutters, baking,frosting with delicious anise flavored goodness and finally decorating with colorful sprinkles. The entire house is infused with the spicy aroma of Lebkuchen! I can’t wait to get started!

  • Aisha Holly

    My husband is the baker in our family and we are hosting Christmas this year for both sides of the family. I know he has been wanting one of these for a while to create all his delicious desserts!! Thanks for the opportunity, Merry Christmas!!

  • I have been wanting a KitchenAid mixer for over a year. I just can not afford it. I love to cook and bake with my 3 boys and this would be perfect for us. We love to make sugar cookies and lemon pound cake.

  • Sam

    What an exciting giveaway! I’m planning on making gingerbread houses with my children this year, so the KitchenAid would be awesome!!

  • I just moved into my first house so I’m obsessed with baking now!

  • Marcy

    Lots of cupcakes!

    I actually need a new kitchen aid mixer because I have used mine way too much!

  • oooh! I can say that “I” need it {b/c I work 24/7} but My oh so lovely, helping hand, hubby DREAMS of this!

    It would be sweet to win so he and the boys could fix a Holiday PIZZA, yup I know what you’re thinking, Pizza?… “Holiday Pizza”

    {we’re not Italian} he just loves making pizzas.

    • oops – I meant to say “I can’t say” rather than “can”

  • Diane

    I’ll be making sugar cookies to decorate with friends.

  • Patrice

    cookies, cookies and more cookies!!!!

  • Randi

    I just had my daughters 1st birthday and did my very first styled table and had MAJOR inspiration from you! Now I am on a roll and loving it so I hope to use this fabulous mixer to whip up some delicious cupcakes and do my very first Holiday table 😉 Plus the red mixer would look so AMAZING on my counter 😉

  • Laura

    I, unfortunately, am not the talented baker in my family. My fiance Ben is always whipping up goodies for me, and the way he looks at KitchenAid mixers in the stores always reminds me of the scene in a Christmas Story when the children have their noses pressed against the toy store window. He’ll probably bake anything that comes into his head, but I have a feeling this holiday season I’m going to be eating a lot of his famous Star-Wars themed desserts.

  • Brianne

    What a divine gift this would be! My niece and nephew are coming to town for the holidays this year and every year we make the most beautiful mess baking sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles. As the resident “family baker,” I’ll be baking cakes, pumpkin bread, cupcakes, cookies and fudge brownies. Can’t wait!!!

  • WOW!!! Super neat giveaway. I still make cookies (lots of them) by using
    my hands and spoon. I wouldn’t know how to act using a wonderful new
    beatufiul mixer. It’s been on my wish list for 2 years now. Love to make decorated sugar cookies for the holiday!

  • This is the first year my oldest is ready to really help & it has been lot’s of fun so far. Yesterday we started with making traditional cut-out sugar cookies & decorating. Today will be snickerdoodles & then kaluha cake ( my very favorite’)

  • I want to learn to bake! It would be a good incentive for me to have a kitchenaid!

  • Tiffany

    I’ve got a great list. Fudge, English toffee, peanut butter bars, cookies, and a cheeseball.

  • Meredith

    Hmmm, I’m not sure. I’m thinking cookies, I have a delicious fresh cranberry cookie recipe.

  • Carey Presley

    I have wanted one of these for the longest time! It would make me spend alot more time in the kitchen!

  • Beautiful giant yummy cakes!

  • Michelle

    I registered for one of these for my wedding but never got it. I still use the hand mixer. I bake about 12 different cookies to give away as gifts every year. This mixer would be great!

  • I’ll bake everything that I’ve put on hold while not having a stand mixer! Buying your own house is great — but not having your own mixer in it leaves it just a bit lacking.

  • Awesome giveaway! I’m going to bake thumbprint cookies, chocolate oatmeal cookies & my mom’s famous carrot cake.

  • Julie

    Angel food cake and fresh whipped cream is so much better made with a kitchen aid in pink!

  • Cookies for sure, though if I had a KitchenAid mixer, I could make a whole bunch of meringues and marshmallows, too. 😉 I love rolling out and frosting sugar cookies this time of year!

  • I’m making salted caramel thumbprint cookies for my friends’ cookie exchange!

  • ooh let’s see – i’ve already done NUMEROUS cookies, and im just now icing my annual sugar cookies. i still have plenty more to go! fudge, caramels, toffee, macaroons, snickerdoodles, etcetcetc! this would make it so easy!

  • Cupcakes and cookies and other comfort food.

  • Kristin P

    My daughter and I pick new recipes the week before Christmas every year that we haven’t made yet and test out our skills in the kitchen. It is a pretty messy affair and some turn out terrible while others become our new favorites!! The Kitchen Aid Mixer would definitely be awesome addition to our kitchen and help out tremendously!!

  • My sister, mom, and I usually get together before Christmas to bake holiday cookies, including a family traditon – Molasses cookies. Mmmm! This would be very handy in mixing the cookie dough and it would make the time we spend together that much more fun!

  • Misty R.

    We bake Christmas cookies every year along with a big batch of buckeyes!

  • Zhaleh

    We always do gingerbread houses when we go to my parents’ house. Since no one likes to share, we end up with a gingerbread village!

  • Wow – What an amazing give away! I’m planning on baking some snowflake shaped gingerbread cookies, i like to decorate them with icing and festive sprinkles – then tie on some pretty ribbons and hang them on our christmas tree. I also bag them and give them as gifts! Merry Christmas!x

I’m looking forward to our annual cookie baking night with extended family on saturday! A night where we whip out my grandmother’s treasured cookie press and get lost in baking and conversation making. Trust me…if I won the Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer – it’ll never have time to collect dust around my house!! Thanks SO much for the giveaway Kitchen Aid and Amy Atlas Events! How exciting!!!

  • I’m starting my own bakery business out of my home and I’m in need of a new mixer! This would be the perfect tool to make my whoopie pies!

  • Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies… Yum!

  • Erica

    What an amazing giveaway, I’ve dreams of the Artisan since… well since forever! I would love to use this to bake focaccia bread, cinnamon rolls and would love to try it out for loaf bread!

  • Tammy J.

    I’ll be making cupcakes this holiday season: Peanut Brittle, Chocolate peppermint and Gingersnap. I’m in the process of becoming a home licensed cupcake baker, so would LOVE to win a KA mixer 🙂

  • Pauline

    I’ve been wanting a new mixer, especially for this upcoming holiday season!

  • I want to do those window glass-type cookies in star-shapes. In the meantime, I’m doing birthday cakes and cupcakes.

  • Sarah

    Most likely cookies!! I love to bake! 🙂

  • For the holidays I’ll be baking choco flan, peanut butter blossom cookies and sugar cookies to decorate!

  • Angela

    I plan to create my first dessert table for a friends holiday get-together which will include a cake (of course!), sugar cookies, mini cheesecakes, macaroons and brownie cookies.
    For family, I plan to bake a wonderful christmas cake.

  • Patricia

    I will make my husbands favorite, triple chocolate brownies! Chocolate brownies with chocolate chips and chocolate ganache!

  • Kercia

    my sister, mom, aunts, and cousins have a baking day and my aunts house every holiday. we get a lot of our holiday baking done and this would be sooo helpful!

  • What a wonderful giveaway! I actually really need a new mixer – my darling violet Artisan that I’ve had for nearly 10 years is nearly dead and I’m not sure how I’m going to get through my holiday baking without a new one (repairs cost nearly as much as a new one!). I’m baking tons of cookies for coworkers, including chewy gingerbread and chocolate cherry cookies, as well as lavender honey shortbread cookies for my brother-in-law’s wedding the week before Christmas. How I would love a new mixer!!!

  • cookies and pies and cakes Oh MY! 😉 I would love a KitchenAid mixer to help me out!!!!

  • DinkerP2

    Ooooo…I need this for my annual Cookie Exchange! Please, please, please? Can have??? 🙂

  • Massiel

    I love to bake for the holidays and this year I plan on going crazy!!! LOL! I have a list of new items to bake this year from Peppermint Brownies to Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes.
    I also have the world’s cutest 3 year old helper that loves to help me mix it all together. My son Brandon makes it even more exciting to start baking this year.

    ~All I’m missing is this beautiful kitchenAid~

  • Tarsy

    This year will be the first Christmas I will be baking for my daughter (she was too little to try anything last Christmas). Classic chocolate chip cookies for Santa of course, cranberry bread and apple crisp. YUM! 🙂

  • OH. EM. GEE! I was JUST talking about this shiney red mixer yesterday and how beautifully it would fit in with our purple and red decor. All I use now is some garbagey hand mixer that coats me with a thin layer of flour every time I use it, and I am a major baker!

    I plan on baking several things – our traditional, from scratch gingerbread house, crazy gingerbread cookies (in our usual, non-traditional shapes, Hannukah candle bats, hula girls, etc.) and my knock-off Starbucks gingerbread loaf with cream cheese icing, DEELISH!

  • Tamara

    I will be baking cookies starting this weekend. I have several recipes to make before Christmas gets here. I like to try some new recipes every year. I’m glad I found your blog recently, and thank you for the chance to win!!

  • Andi Holt

    Cupcakes and cookies all season long!! I  christmas baking!!

  • Adonna

    it will be a busy Christmas making so many flavors of cookies, fudge ( 12 different kinds) and several different barks and pies of course 🙂
    a KitchenAid would make it all so much easier…

  • Penny H

    Great giveaway! Brownies…they are my family’s favourite.

  • I’ll be making some pies, some bread, and of course lots of cake!

  • Janelle

    I am planning to bake gingerbread cookies, hamantaschen, and try cake pops again.

  • Jessica

    This is my first year getting into baking. I’m making an assortment of cookies, fudge and homemade pies. Would love the mixer to help me along 🙂

  • Libier

    I’d like to bake sooo many things: sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies, cupcakes, cheesecake, pop cakes… I’d like to make a candy buffet (everytime I see one of yours, love them!!) so, but, I’m not really good at baking so I may bake just a couple of them.

    My stand mixer broke down a few days ago while I was making some buns. Of course, it was not a Kitchen Aid (I can’t afford one) but make me sad, I’d just got it as a present from my mom and I haven’t been able to bake anything!

  • Lisa

    My Kitchen Aid mixer has been the most used item in my kitchen for 30 years. They didn’t have the fun colors they have now, just plain white. But it doesn’t matter, it has been a trooper.

I am planning on taking a stab at my mother-in-law’s sugar cookie recipe this year…with one alteration.

  • WOW!!! Thank you, Amy!! I’m a great fan and a great admirer of yours ever since I first set my eyes on your beautiful, beautiful work!! And for this, what a FUN-TASTIC & a PERFECT season give-away gift! 🙂 My son, Andrew and I love to bake together in our little kitchen; it is one of our Mom & son quality time together; not only that we have lots of fun but he is also learning a lot about baking, cooking & baking terminologies, recipes and measurements. We are always laughing and having lots of fun and the best part, we get to taste the fruit of our labor with lots of love, giggles and laughters. Just this past weekend I was sharing with my Andrew how much it would be easier to bake cakes and cookies and make frostings with a KitchenAid & how convenient it would be to use the paddle for thicker dough and whisk perfect whipped frosting but they’re very expensive so we make do with what we have at home, a small hand-held mixer. Especially this season, my 10 yr old son & I will be making snowball cakes, sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies (his favorite) & try out new frosting recipes. His friends, classmates & teachers always look forward to his baked goods each holiday so we are sooo excited to see this; we almost peed in our pants!! 🙂 We hope that we have a chance to win this elegant, beautiful, perfect KitchenAid & it will surely look gorgeous & happy on our kitchen counter top. Thank you so very much, Amy, KitchenAid & Staff and Happy Holidays to all!
    Beth & Andrew

    • This is my very first time to ever sign up for any give-away gifts you’ve offered; I never knew that I could without having a blog! 🙂 So I tried it today and it accepted my message submittion! 🙂 I AM SO BEYOND THRILLED, AMY!! I CAN’T STOP SMILING WITH GRATITUDE & EXCITEMENT!! 🙂 Thank you, thank you so much Amy, for the opportunity!! This precious KitchenAid mixer would make such a GREAT AND PERFECT gift for me, for my son Andrew, and for our humble kitchen! I can’t wait to make more wonderful, memorable memories with my baby boy baking away in our little kitchen. WOW, I’m torn between the colors of Buttercup or the Ice Blue KitchenAid mixer but since blue is my son’s favorite color, I’d pick that gorgeous Ice Blue color! We will be baking away with snowball cakes, cupcakes, brownies, sugar cookies, different flavored homemade frostings and more!! Giggling & dancing away with excitement!! Thanks so much!

    • Having killed my old truly excellent mixer with years of use (metal fatigue is a real deal killer) the very first thing I would make with a new mixer is my original recipe Sweet Orange Bread with candied orange (and I am not telling the other secret ingredients). I created this recipe for my late mother, who loved this bread but was always frustrated that I would invent recipes and not follow a written one. It’s been a while since she left us, and it is time to bake the bread again and enjoy.

  • Christine N.

    LOVE baking with my 4 year old daughter!! We both put our aprons on and bake tons of cookies every Christmas–Marshmallow Clouds, Sugar, Butter and Orange Marmalade are just a sample:)

  • Maria Malaveci

    My husband asks our pumpkins “What does Mama want from Santa?” and their response???

    And I didn’t drop the whisk when reading this, but my jaw definitely did hit the floor!

  • olysiah

    Can I play? Can I play?
    I’m French and I love Christmas time. Baking for my family is one of the best pleasure on earth. This year, i’m gonna try something we have in the south of France, called “calisson”. This is a sweet candy made with almond and melon, and it’s so cute. The one i’m gonna make will include pistacchios. The story of that pastry is so romantic: long time ago, there was a king, René d’Anjou, and a queen, Jeanne de Laval, and they got married. The queen was often sad and never smiled. But the patissier, who loved her in secret, made that sweet candy. When she ate one, she made a smile. She even said these candies were sweet as hugs, “di cali soun” in old french. The name of that sweet was found, calisson.

  • David

    OMG! I am so excited that you are giving one of these away. I have wanted one for years but everytime I go to buy it, something happens that doesn’t justify me spending the money.

  • I’ve already been baking away but still have lots to do on my list! Tonight I am making candied pecans and tomorrow red velvet cookies!

  • I want to make fudge, real mashed potatoes, Danish rice pudding, and more!

  • tony

    I would do loaves of my “famous” honey-whole wheat bread with this beauty for Christmas gifts . Everyone tells me its better than the local bakeries and it would be so much easier to whip them up with this amazing Kitchen-Aid. Plus, my kitchen has pops of red so this would go so well in there.

  • Megan

    I’ll be baking sugar cookies and a birthday cake for my brother, his birthday is Christmas day.

  • Every year my family gets together and makes our family tradition of sour cream cookies and date pinwheels… My brother and I always love to eat the warm cookies right out of the oven… But this year he won’t be there to eat them with me… He was killed in an accident on November 19, 2010… So I would like the mixer to be able to make cookies faster and be able to get to the part of the cookies coming out of the oven so our family can remember him the way we loved him… Thanks

    Waiting for my daughter to come home from college so we can make all her favorite cookies. One of our favorites is definitely gingerbread cookies. We could always use a great mixer to help.

  • Gwen

    When I go home from grad school for the holidays (Monday! I can’t wait!) my mom and I are going to bake So. Much. Our favourite things to bake during the holidays are press cookies, because we’re both artists and its so much fun to decorate each tiny one differently, with coloured sugar, sprinkles, and our absolute favourites because they melt slightly into the cookie when you bake them, red hot candies right in the center (((((:!

  • Would love to win a new KitchenAid ARTISAN mixer! My favorite thing to make our royal frosted sugar cookies. They are almost too pretty to eat!

  • Patti D

    I will be baking the usual Christmas cookies..but what my family looks forward to the most is my Graham Cracker Pie, which was my Grandmother’s recipe, and I make a couple every holiday!

  • Jennifer Delaurier

    I always make my grandmother’s special whipped shortbread for Christmas, it’s become a family tradition that I am proud to carry on.

  • Oooooooh, I would SO love to win!!!! My mom, my 3 year old daughter and I have an annual Bake Day…this year slated for December 23rd and we make every kind of fun cookie imaginable. A KitchenAid mixer would be icing on the cake!!

  • Trisha B.

    I would LOVE a Kitchen Aid! My children and I love making all kinds of goodies, cookies, breads, cakes! We have been having ‘cook offs’ with my husband and 3 children where we split into teams. We select something like brownies and then each team gets to pick their own recipe and their own additions and then we vote to see which one was the favorite! What a joy the Kitchen Aid would add to this activity!

  • Brooke Young

    I have already been busy baking. So far I have made peanut butter kiss cookies, chocolate cookies, and sugar cookies. I am planning on baking a lot more and making more cookies and maybe even trying French Macaroons for the first time.

  • Naomi

    LOTS and LOTS of fudge!

  • Ivy

    This is the most generous giveaway!
    I would love to bake more than I do now…. our life is so busy…
    If I won, I would get this in Tangerine and give it as a gift to my mother.
    She has a tiny but beautiful kitchen that she shares with my dad on occasion. To watch her and my kids bake cookies and capture it in photos would be grand, especially with a new mixer that matches all of her KitchenAid Tangerine accessories in her white and light aqua kitchen!!

  • I would love to make peppermint whoopie pies for the holidays with my new mixer! My boyfriend and I are working diligently on a kitchen remodel and a new Kitchen Aid mixer would be the PERFECT addition!


  • Allison Brostrom

    Every year we make GIANT gingerbread men to give to neighbors along with the fixings for them to decorate the cookies (of course we make some for us too!)
    We hang some on the tree, the rest we eat, yum!

  • Squeaks

    Teeny weeny gingerbread houses, cinnamon sugar cookies, lebkuchen (my favourite) and a wickedly decadent ginger cake (can you tell I like spice?!). Thank you for the amazing giveaway – what a Christmas treat this would be!

  • jodi

    Sugar cookies and pumpkin eggnog bread pudding with vanilla rum sauce! One of my favorite Christmas memories is setting aside a day with my mom and making sugar cookies with our old family recipe. Decorating was always my favorite part (second to taste-testing them of course!). Now my favorite part is making cute goodie bags to deliver the cookies in. Can’t wait for my mom to come to my house this year so we can start the baking!

  • I have wanted one of these for AGES!!! It’s even on my amazon wish list. What an amazing giveaway! This would make the 100 cake pops I have to make so much easier!

  • Baker Rosie

    I will be baking 11 different flavours of shortbread, cupcakes, my Fall Fair third place ribbon winning gingerbread and our family’s traditional pine nut and dried fruit Portuguese sweet bread – I like it best when toasted and fresh butter!

  • sarah

    Making homemade candy! LOTS of it!

  • A great addition this would be,
    Using a “Kitchen” to “Aid” those in need!
    Measure, mix, bake & eat,
    Wrap those goodies into treats!
    Go and seek and you will find,
    Giving food gifts is so kind!

    So if I win this Kitchen-Aid,
    Baking won’t stop till all is made!
    When the baking is complete,
    I’ll share my blessing with those I meet!

  • Kristy

    For Christmas I always make a LARGE assortment of treats – surprise cookies, sugar cookies, buckeyes, fudge, chocolate chip cookies…etc. Most of the time my husband has to assist me in the kitchen by stirring the dough while I grasp the sides of the bowl on the kitchen counter to make sure we have properly mixed the ingredients. I’m sure it’s funny to watch us in the kitchen! Anyway, this mixer would make baking MUCH EASIER and I’m sure my husband would enjoy it too! Merry Christmas! 🙂

I love giving baked goodies to my neighbors and husband’s co-workers for the Christmas season. Also, I’m planning to make little doggie treats to put under the tree for my for my dog.

      My mother loved Christmas and every year she made sugar cookies for the holidays. They were perfect for cut out cookies and I used to love making them with her when I was little. She passed away many years ago but I still love making those cookies. I don’t know if mine will ever taste as good as hers but baking cookies is how I remember her.

  • Tricia

    What a super fantastic giveaway! I would LOVE a KitchenAid…right now my hand-held ancient mixer is about to die. 🙁

    I will be baking all kinds of Christmas cookies with the kiddos. Our favourite is always sugar cookies with royal icing and would love to bake these for the very first time with a KitchenAid mixer!!!

  • I plan on baking cookies or some sort. I’m not the BEST baker in the world. I often mess it up actually. Either the recipe or my hand (me & hand mixers have really big issues – especially getting things caught in it… ugh). So this would save me a huge headache 🙂 I would love to make some homemade pumpkin bars and peanut butter cookies. I haven’t done that in probably 10 years!

  • sonya

    I need one of these!!! I’m planning on baking PW’s chocolate sheet cake and my MIL’s recipe for Lemon Lush!

  • Adriana pereira

    My most favorite thing to make at the holidays is our annual gingerbread house. Our boys really look forward to it. This year I think I may even let them make their own and we can make a gingerbread village . We also bake lots and lots of cookies :). Happy holidays!

  • Ali

    Every year my sister and I make a gingerbread house together for my birthday. We have saved as many of them as we can over the years and still have one from when were were 3. But mixing up the royal icing by hand takes forever. A KitchenAid would be a lovely helper in making the dough and especially the royal icing. Cheers!

  • Haiku

    Already made the traditional plum pudding, will make gingerbread from scratch, stollen, and 7-layer caramel cake!

  • Cookies cookies and more cookies!!

  • Sharon

    Every year we make a special dutch treat. It is very sweet dough which is filled with all kinds of nuts and fruits. It is baked like a bread in the oven. On christmas morning the kids can choose how we finish the bread. Everything is possible: chocolate, butter, yelly, sugar. You name it and we put it on the ” bread”. We enjoy it together with a cup of hot chocolate with a lot of whipcream

  • I could really use this. I just made 500 sugar cookies with a hand mixer!!!

  • what could I not make with this thing?

  • Since losing my mom this summer, creating traditions with my daughter has become even more important! I would love to use this mixer when we bake together in the kitchen! Cookies, cake, anything sweet!

  • Schmidty

    Lots and lots of cookies, a cake or two, my grandma’s date nut loaf, and a turkey with all the fixins!

  • Ariel

    I’ll be baking red velvet cupcakes with buttercream frosting, and our family’s famous sweet potato pie!

  • Jillian

    My only aunt and I have been baking Christmas cookies and other desserts for over 20 years together. When I was younger, I was basically no help, but hey, I was good company. Now that I’m older, I can do a lot of the work…but she’s still the queen baker.

    This Christmas, we’re baking our usual treats, plus a few new ones:

    Peanut butter balls (quite possibly the most satisfying treat ever)
    Almond crescent cookies
    Checkerboard cookies
    Miniature sugar cookies
    French bark
    Strufoli (a traditional Italian desssert. The dough is usually mixed by hand on a wooden board, but boy would it be easier to use this mixer!)

  • Linda

    Really, the question is what am I not baking! 🙂 rediscovered my baking passion so the list includes gifts of banana bread, caramel sauce, chocolate bark, candied almonds, and of course many many cookies!

    My wish list for 2011 includes a KitchenAid stand mixer….I use a hand mixer right now. Would be wonderful!!!!

    Happy Holidays to all!

  • Kati

    Oh this would be awesome! I was given my Grandmother’s Kitchenaid stand mixer when she passed away, because my Mother already had one. Well, hers went out and I felt guilty for having my Grandmother’s so I gave it to her…and have missed it desperately! I’ll primarily be making homemade rolls and butter cookies. How fun!
    Merry Christmas!

  • PatS

    This would be such a fun kitchen item to win! Wow can you imagine mixing cookie dough with that!!! Sure would be muscle power provided by me alone, but I loved it when the kids were home to do the stirring, and of course the tasting and decorating! Christmas has to be the best time of the year, no way around it!! Merry Christmas to all and to all a Happy Baking time!

  • I would love one of these. We always do a Christmas Baking day with my sister and my mom and the kids. 🙂

  • Sarah

    Each Christmas I make personalised gingerbread houses and Christmas trees for all of my friends and family. It takes such a long time, making sure that there is something on the houses that they have on their real homes. This would make it so much easier to accomplish all the baking that I do, particularly over the festive season. Pavlovas will be attempted this year as well as Mars Bar cake for the houses we attend. No one appreciates these gifts more than a Christmas host.

  • Leonie

    I’ll make some meringues…

    Every year for Christmas I make homemade artisan bread for gifts to go with whatever jam or jelly the summer season has inspired me to make, this year though in leiu of jam, I made footed walnut cutting boards for the bread to “ride” on for gifts. So as usual there is lots of Kneading in my future! Along with a few trusted cookie recipes including Russian Tea Cakes and gingerbread men!

I’ll be baking mince pies next weekend, and I hope to get to make rum cubes a day or two before christmas. Happy holiday!

Truly a MUST HAVE every holiday season.

    Every year my grandma, sister and I spend an entire day baking & decorating sugar cookies for Christmas. The next day, we make chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter kiss cookies, snickerdoodles, and corn flake wreaths. For the baking finale, we make homemade fudge and “Aunt Bill’s” candy.
