Making shortbread cookies
I would love to try Ina Garten's shortbread cookie recipe.
Basically, it's butter,sugar, flour, vanilla, salt. She uses a stand mixer to combine the ingredients.
I do not have a stand mixer, and was wondering if I can use my Cuisinart processor? Would the texture of the dough be different? Are there any accommodations I should make?
I do have a hand mixer ,but I don't think it would be powerful enough, although perhaps it would be.
Thanks for any help.
I'd use the paddle attachment during the creaming stage. Then proceed using the pulse button so not to overdevelop the glutton by over-mixing.
I don't have a food processor so I dunno about that but I'd use the handmixer to cream together the butter sugar and flour then just a wooden spoon and some good ole fashion arm muscles to get it the rest of the way. I bet your cookies would be just as amazing.
