      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31).

Accessories you need



I've used DoTerra essential oils as they are certified safe to use in food.  

The dough will taste stronger than the cooked biscuits, so adjust amount of essential oils according to taste.
