Default Need recommendation for food/dough mixer

No one mentioned this possibility, but you might consider keeping the
older processor and augment it with a good bread machine. No question
that a KitchenAid or Viking would handle the heavier doughs, but they
are also a considerable investment. My cuisinart FPC-11 has a plastic
blade for dough, but even the "11" strains at some cookie doughs.
My Breadman Ultimate not only makes various breads, but has
separate cycles for jam, dough and pizza dough. This allows
you to get your dough made virtually unattended and still
free-form your breads, cakes or cookies. I'l be making a batch
of potato kolaches today and the breadman will do most of
the work. I'll just roll the dough out, cut the kolaches, press
the center wells and fill them, and allow one final rise while
the oven is heating. I have a bad back and standing for
extended periods is a problem, but this works for me
quite well.

I have an old food processor. I'd like to replace it with something
that not only works as a food processor, but hopefully also as a dough
machine. Specifically for mixing cookie dough, and perhaps bread
dough. I'm at the point in my life where I need to make things as
simple as possible. Trouble is I love to bake. I tend to stick to
simple stuff because I just can't spend too much time on my feet. I'm
thinking a machine that does the mixing for me while I add ingredients
would be a big help.

I don't have much counter space so I want to get something that is as
versatile as possible.

I'd appreciate recommendations.

Thanks
