I am in a book club.

It’s definitely not lame.

Definitely.

You wanna know why?

Because sometimes books get turned into movies.

So, in the name of research you get to go watch a great movie with a bunch of your friends.

It’s really a sweet deal.

Men get poker, we get book clubs.  It’s the way it works in middle America.

This past weekend my fellow book clubbers and I went to the movies to see The Help.

We read the book many months ago and were all very excited.

Here’s the thing..lots of women loved this book, so opening weekend of The Help was a crowded affair.

We purchased our tickets in advance and arrived a full hour before showtime to ensure optimal seating.

Apparently the folks that run the theater anticipated a large turn-out for the show and created a “corral” of sorts.  A space where we could stand in order awaiting our entrance into the show.

My friends and I stood obediently inside the designated area, waiting patiently as time ticked by.  What we began to notice, however, was that many weren’t respecting the “corral”.  They just sauntered by us, sniggering to themselves, and approached the theater entrance with no consequence.  Of course the penned up ladies surrounding me started stirring.  I felt an uprising commence.

How DARE people not stand in line? We were here EARLY! We purchased our tickets on the INTERNET!  We have RIGHTS!

The stir quickly became a roar when the theater doors opened and the non-line-waiters got in first.  Travesty!  By my recollection it was nothing short of a stampede.  I can only compare it to running with the bulls in Pamplona…the corralled women being the bulls and the line-snubbers being the foolish people who choose to run with them.

The men that run the cinema were clearly not prepared for The Help-pocolypse because as soon as women started yelling about line respecting and ticket pre-ordering they shut down like my husband does at the mention of  “feelings”.

One of my friends, who has more assertion than I do, asked one of the line cutting culprits if she hadn’t noticed the dozens of women waiting?  “Do lines mean nothing to you?“, I believe were her exact words.  Well, apparently this woman had some pent up anger that she needed to unleash, because she started yelling…actually I think the correct terminology is “going postal”.  It was frankly, hilarious.

This woman’s pre-chick flick rage made me feel all at once embarrassed for my gender and entertained beyond measure.  Kinda like any given episode of Real Housewives.

The lesson here my friends is don’t mess with women who have been corralled…they tend to lose their grace.  This is why I never plan on going to jail.

Plus, it appears that Book Club is just a whisper away from Fight Club..any given day, my friends.

Soft Cream Cheese Filled Snickerdoodle Recipe

After a night on the streets town with my friends I need comfort food.

These cookies are every bit of comfort you could possibly need and they are as good as they sound.

Cream Cheese Filled Snickerdoodles.

How to Make Cream Cheese Filled Snickerdoodles:

They take a few more steps than a regular snickerdoodle, but it’s worth it.

Start with your dough…

Then you have to follow a few easy steps…this is what makes them special.

Now roll them in your cinnamon sugar mixture.

And after a little chill time you bake them up.  They look like regular snickerdoodles…all pretty and cinnamony.

But when you bite into them they reveal their secret…it’s a good one…creamy filling.  De Nada.

Description:

Cream Cheese Filled Snickerdoodles are so much better than the average cookie! This snickerdoodle recipe is any cinnamon lover’s dream baked into reality. These sweet, creamy cookies are absolutely perfect for any occasion!


Ingredients:

Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup room temp butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Instructions:

  1. Make the cream cheese filling by mixing the cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tsp vanilla. I used my hand mixer for this.
  2. Cover the cream cheese mixture and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°
  4. Cream butter and 1 1/2 cup sugar until fluffy.
  5. Add eggs and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix until combined.
  6. On low speed mix in your flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Set dough to the side.
  7. In a small bowl combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon, set that aside as well.
  8. Remove the cream cheese mixture from the refrigerator.
  9. For each cookie you will need 2 flattened balls of dough, 1 Tbsp each. (The flattened disk will be approx 2″ in diameter)
  10. Place 1 tsp of the cream cheese mixture on top of one of the flattened dough disks. Then place the other flattened dough on top of the cream cheese. Pinch the edges together to seal.
  11. Carefully form into a ball and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on a plate as you finish making each and refrigerate. Before baking the cookies they should chill for 15 minutes.
  12. When the dough is chilled bake on a parchment lined baking sheet 2″ apart for 8 minutes.
  13. Transfer to wire rack to cool.

Notes:

Store in an airtight container, refrigerate if keeping for more than 1 day

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. Snickerdoodles are my husbands FAVORITE…his second favorite? Cream cheese anything. I think that I will probably make these for him sometime and not tell him that there is a surprise in the middle 🙂 How fun!

  2. Who doesn’t like cream cheese? I personally love it. I have a recipe using cream cheese that turns brussel sprout haters to brussel sprout cheerleaders with my bacon wrapped stuffed (with cream cheese) brussel sprouts

  3. Holy Moly! I am ready to make them right now! They look and sound amazing! Darn I do not have any cream cheese! I am going to the grcoery store tomorrow!! Thanks for shairng!!

  4. Elizabeth

    i love your blog Your so funny! I was cracking up so much my boyfriend in the other room had to see what was so funny! I also love your recipes thanks for sharing!

  5. That is flippin’ *hilarious* I am seeing The Help tomorrow with a friend. Perhaps I’ll bake up a batch of these little gems to “make fiends” with all of the pent up crazies out there. 🙂

  6. Having travelled to many places where there once was British rule, I have experiences the wonders of qeueing. I myself come from a country that doesn’t qeue. We push and pile. We crowd the doors from the train to make sure no one will make it in before us, succesively preventing people to exit that same train. We crowd and have no respect for entering in the order we arrived.
    Having seen a qeue, it still ticks me of big time if people cut in line.
    This made me laugh so hard. And then to think I just clicked on a recipe for snickerdoodles…

  7. These look utterly wonderful 🙂 I loved the taste of the raspberry cream cheese chocolate cookies I made and posted about a while back but they were such a pain in the bum to make! The dough and filling of yours looks SO much more managable so im definitely hoping to try these out 🙂

    These look delicious! I read the book, and can’t wait to see the movie. Your experience is unbelievable….seriously, what are some people thinking? Despite all that, I’m glad you were still able to enjoy the movie though!

  9. I need to read that book still before I hit up the movie. And I don’t think your book club is lame, because I’ve been trying to get my friends to do one for awhile! Our schedules are not consistent enough :-(. But I love any cookie, let alone one stuffed with cream cheese, woo!

  10. Can I just say, as a fellow rule-follower, that line cutters annoy me beyond belief! I would have been the friend that just couldn’t help but say something. Oh and cream cheese filled snickerdoodles?! YUM!!

  11. I went and saw The Help with my mother-in-law and the theater was PACKED with rowdy older women. I kept teasing her that her people were out representin’. 😉

    These cookies are genius. Best flavor combo ever, hands down.

  12. Well…you ARE a real housewive and you ARE from New Jersey…so what more could you really expect? 😛 (JK you know I <3<3<3 you!)

    Mmm cream cheese filling…equally as good as cream cheese frosting…which we all know is a miracle unto itself.

    1. Sweet treat right? Snickerdoodles were always present on my simple dessert lists.

      Btw, your experience on the cinema was really funny. I can imagine if I was there, I might crack a laugh at the whole scene with the corralled woman. haha. 😀
      And thanks for sharing the recipe too.
