Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe {Made With My New KitchenAid Stand Mixer}

Next to chocolate chip cookies, and sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies are my weakness. Are you a cookie lover? What kind of cookies are your weakness?

I really love baking, but I don’t do it often because I never really had the proper equipment. That all changed the other day when I won a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer (and ice cream maker attachment …. which will be used often, so stay tuned)!

I won the Kitchen Aid stand mixer from Covet Garden and 2life app’s “We All Scream for Ice Cream” contest – you can imagine my excitement! I had to make something with it the day it arrived at my house; and after looking through the booklet that came with it, I was craving peanut butter.

The story of me winning it is actually quite entertaining. Before bed one night at my cottage, I was chatting with my family about how I really wanted a Kitchen Aid Mixer  (I had just been making macarons with friends earlier in the day and it would have come in so handy).

When I woke up in the morning, I opened an email from 2life letting me know I had won the contest and this fabulous chrome Kitchen Aid Mixer would be delivered when I arrived home from my vacation. At first, I wasn’t quite sure if I was dreaming.

I wouldn’t be opposed to all my wishes coming true like this 😉

Let the baking begin!

    That’s so cool! Congrats on winning. You’re definitely going to put it to good use. Those cookies look so yummy. You mention making macarons and I’ve heard they’re really difficult to make, have you made them before?

      Thanks Julia! It was my first attempt to make macarons, and let’s just say it was pretty much a fail 😉 We tried twice and both times it didn’t work, although it was looking better the second time around. We’ll be trying again next week so hopefully it’s a success (we won’t stop trying until it’s perfect!). Stay Tuned!!

        I look forward to hearing about it 🙂
