Mixing Tips Cookie dough is one of the thickest doughs to mix. Make it easier by following these tips: • Use a large mixing bowl so that the ingredients spread out for easier mixing. • Have butter or margarine at room temperature. • Add ingredients one at a time and thoroughly mix after each addition. • Add flour one cup at a time. • To add chips or nuts to a very thick dough or batter, we recommend stirring them in by hand at the very end of the recipe. Cleaning Your Mixer 1. Always turn off and unplug mixer from electrical outlet before ejecting the attachments. 2. Wash attachments in hot, soapy water; rinse and dry. 3. Wipe the mixer body and cord with a clean, damp cloth. 6 NOTES: • Do not use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads. • To reduce the risk of electrical shock do not immerse the mixer body or cord in water or other liquid. • The optional storage case should be wiped clean with a damp cloth. It is not dishwasher safe. 840136300 ENv00 4/8/05 1:17 PM Page 7 Recipes Baked Spinach-Parmesan Dip 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed 1 cup mayonnaise 3-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature 1⁄2 cup onion, minced 1 clove garlic, minced 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika 1 baguette, thinly sliced Squeeze spinach to remove liquid.
