It took me a few tries, but I decided on what I wanted my Master Baker entry to be. No clue why I ever tried anything else, these are without a doubt my favourite ever. Getting ahead of myself, let me start with this morning when I found this beauty on my porch.
Other people’s preferences got me this sexy girl, not any people liked the colour so Kitchen Aid sold her on close out for half price! Ain’t she gorgeous? She’s the very first KA for me, D spoils me rotten and bought her for my B-Day.
There was no question about what I wanted to make first, and it happened to also be what I wanted to make for my Master Baker entry. Chocolate chip cookies! At least half of them were dark chocolate chips, the other half were full of Easter Candy!
Have you ever seen such perfectly mixed cookie dough? She can do no wrong, I’m in love.
The cookies aren’t as dark as this pic makes them, the lighting wasn’t great at 9:30 p.m. The Reese’s Eggs baked very nice in the cookies, they stayed warm and gooey like they should be. Master Baker, your Easter Candy challenge has been done!

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
