You’ll need your food processor to whip this baby out in no time. I used our 11 cup food processor to make this recipe. This Cuisinart Food Processor is a newer model of the one we have, as ours is lasting forever. Sixteen years and counting. I’d totally recommend it. I use it to make cookie dough, hummus, bread dough, muffin batter, nice cream, oat flour, and lots more. I seriously couldn’t live without this work horse.
