30 Year Old Mixer Make~Over

 I have had this wonderful KitchenAid mixer for 30 years!

The motor has never burnt out and still mixes like new.
I love all the new colors and picked out my favorite,
but just making do with what I have!
So I thought a little mixer make~over would do the trick for now!
 Sweet blogger friend Kathy from 
Kathy's Cottage 
has a Etsy shop that sales kitchen mixer decals!
They are so cute and she has so many different styles!
 Since I have cream & white in my kitchen,
thought this choice would be perfect.
 Easy to apply and fun to do.
Love the little blue polka~dots too!
 I hear my mixer saying …  
"it's time to make some cookies!"

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • PREHEAT oven to 375° F. Grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Spread into prepared pan. BAKE for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. YUMMY!

I think your mixer is saying "I feel pretty."

Very Sweet...I still use my mixmaster, received as a bridal shower gift 40 years ago.

I love how it turned out Maryjane, and I love seeing the design on a new background color. I think It's so pretty :)
Thank you for sharing. I always enjoy seeing how the designs look in other kitchens, and yours is beautiful.

So cute! I just featured Trisha's mixer a couple weeks ago that she did that to. I thought it was so sweet! I love pan cookies, but haven't made them that way in years. Better do it! lol!
