  • Dan! Go to the Bosch store on Center Street in Orem and buy yourself a Bosch mixer! They always have pre-conference sales in September.
    We’ve had ours for almost 30 years and it’s still going strong!
    Cookies look delicious and I’ll make them as soon as the weather is cool enough to turn on the oven 🙂
