The Perfect Combination of KitchenAid and a Shortbread Cookie Recipe

Finding the perfect mixer is like finding your soulmate. Once you find the one you hold them tight and enjoy the rest of your life with them.  

KitchenAid has always been an obsession of mine… we can all agree on that. So when you walk into our kitchen the first thing you notice is my Guava Glaze KitchenAid Artisan Mini 3.5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer. I do a lot of baking and it’s nice to have this stand mixer which A.) does not take up space on my counter B.) is the perfect touch of decor C.) always makes my life easier when it comes to baking. The perfect texture everytime and that’s the whole point.

I’m going to share with you guys the perfect Shortbread Cookie Recipe that me and my KitchenAid collaborate on together.  I like shortbreads because they quick, easy and they are perfect for almost every occasion.  To top off the shortbreads add a touch of chocolate on top, because who doesn’t like chocolate? And when choosing your chocolate, get the good stuff (I used Chocolats Favoris Milk Chocolate).  All you have to do is just gently press the chocolate on top and its softens to perfection!

Get ready to be asked constantly, “Hey, are you making thoseshortbreads again?.
