A few recipe notes -- I did, in fact, use my stand mixer and they turned out just fine. I also want to mention that I weighed, rather then measured, my ingredients. If you do a lot of baking -- get a scale! I only recently purchased one and I have been loving it. It is both more accurate and less messy. I also used a European style butter, which generally has less water than American style. I'm not sure the effect this might have, but thought I should mention it. Finally, please note that she uses Celsius for the oven temp -- the Fahrenheit equivalent is about 300 degrees.
