My husband bought me a KitchenAid stand mixer Pro 600 for Christmas two years ago. I sometimes wonder what I ever did without it! The Pro 600 has the big 6 quart mixing bowl, which enables me to double (and sometimes triple) my cookie recipes without breaking my arm in the process.
This recipe comes from the booklet included with my mixer. The cookies turned out slightly chewy on the outside and soft in the centers. This is a good recipe for people who want just a hint of peanut butter flavor, as it is not overly strong.
