Snickerdoodle Blondies

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I think. I must be the most flattering girl in the whole world. I pretty much spend my time taking other people's recipes, making them exactly as instructed, and regurgitating it here on my blog. I probably shouldn't use the word "regurgitating" on a food blog, eh?
Today's recipient of my constant fawning and groveling is the lovely and talented Peabody of Culinary Concoctions by Peabody. I assume she's lovely, but I know she's talented. All her recipes and pictures cause instant salivation.
I LOVE snickerdoodles, and I figured I could only love these as well. One of the fabulous perks of my chosen workplace is one night a week they serve snickerdoodles on the trays for the patients. They are out of this world for hospital food. I like to take the tray of food in to the patient who has been complaining of nausea the most that particular day and say "oh sorry dear, I think these icky cookies would only make you sicker. Let me take those away for you". Then I run like hell.

I'm not sure why I chose to poke holes in it to check for doneness before I took the pic. I can be such a dumbass. The only change I made in her recipe was to use cream cheese instead of marscapone, because it's cheaper and I already had some.

Overall this had a very Thanksgiving-ish pumpkin pie taste to it. I'll have to eat about 5 more pieces before I can truly decide if I want to make it again.

UPDATE: Okay, I ate them all. I think they're definitely worth making again. *burP*

Just when you think you know someone ... Snickerdoodles? Really? There's a snickerdoodle cake recipe from "The Crepes of Wrath" blog. I've bookmarked it. Maybe I'll make it for your birthday.

Julie said...

Yes really! Even though there's no chocolate. I like that crepes of wrath girl. She never pays me any attention though.

Lunch Buckets said...

Yah. Me either. Probably because her blog name is cooler than ours combined. That's my guess anyway.

Hi fellow Welcomista! I'm FINALLY getting around to saying HI to everyone, hehe. Yummy recipe...I'm the same way. If I don't follow the recipe exactly, it's all over, hehe. Anything with Snicker and doodle in the name is all good to me. And funny about the holes, so something I would do. Chat soon :-)

Sweet wounded wuffles. This is worse than the shortbread Girl Scout cookies. I could eat the whole pan! In fact, I think I will!

You find the yummiest recipes. And if you didn't post them on your site, how could I copy them? I fail to see a problem here.

I clicked the follow button. I've had your blog bookmarked and check it all the time, but I feel like a much better bloggy friend now ;-)
