Need pastry/baking help! (making dough TONIGHT!)

foodieX2 | Apr 16, 2013 10:26 AM

First things first I am not a baker! But I made a commitment so here it goes.

I am making the following recipe but I need to make 6-8 dozen as opposed to 4. I adjusted the recipe for the increase but was wondering if I could do the first step in my KA mixer with either the paddle or whisk attachement as opposed to doing it by hand or with a pastry cutter. Will the final texture be ruined/too tough?

Other recipes said you could forgo the rolling of the dough and just form balls that you press flat before grilling. Would that help save some of the texture?

Granted this is for a large group gathering and will be part of many foods offered but still, I want it to be good!

thank you for helping a not-so-experienced-baker out!
