When mixing thick cookie dough using the paddle my stand mixer has a hard time doing it.  Should I switch to the dough hook?

What cookie dough are you working with?

For large quantities of dough with high proportion of nuts, chocolate bits, and/or nuts I've done exactly what you are contemplating with good results. Same approach works for mixing meat loaf or meat balls with a mixer.

It's usually the roll out type doughs.  As soon as the machine can't seem to handle it I stop the machine and mix manually.  It's a Kitchen Aid tilt machine.  I never made yet pie dough with the hook.  I don't see how it can mix thick pie dough.

Your approach with roll out cookie dough is good. Only other option is a more powerful mixer.

Pie dough is best made by hand or using a food processor. You'll be disappointed if you use a mixer for that.
