Snickerdoodle Pie

This Easy Snickerdoodle Pie is so easy and delicious! Can be whipped up in just a little bit of time!

 I’m gonna gripe.

If you don’t want to hear it, please fast forward to the tasty recipe below.
If you’re on-board to listen to my diatribe, please carry forth.
 Today’s grievance is…
{drum-roll please}
Annoying facebook posts.
You know the ones.
Here are some that top my “please pierce my eyes out with skewers rather then make me read them” posts…
(these status updates are all paraphrased, but totally real)
“Made homemade cinnamon rolls AGAIN for my kids..guess I am a creature of habit”
Gag.  We get that you are trying to convince people you are Mother of the Year, or you know what? maybe you are…but please, my kids are sitting here eating Lucky Charms and quite happy.  Plus, Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls are seriously yourself the yeast.
“Woo hoo!  I am now down to my high school weight…love the gym!”
Double gag.  I certainly can’t speak for everyone, but I know that I don’t give 2 shakes how much you weigh.  Stop bragging about loving the gym.  The gym sucks, we all know it.
“Having a bad day…”
PLEASE, just come out and say WHY you’re having a bad day…it’s obvious you want people to ask, so spit it out, because, trust me on this…I’m NOT going to inquire further.
Any random song lyric. 
 No one thinks your cool because you quote The Rolling Stones.
I MIGHT think you’re cool if you quote Vanilla Ice, but no one seems to do that.
“My husband is cheating on me.”
Dude, TMI. While I agree that he should be put on blast, not sure that facebook is the correct forum.  Just sayin’.
or the most annoying…
Updating the world with EVERY THING YOU DO…
example…“Just got home from work…”, “What to eat for dinner?”, “Gonna watch some TV now”, “Great show”, “Sleepy now, going to bed”
Don’t need to know everything.
Now, beyond all THAT I really enjoy facebook.
I like seeing pictures and keeping in touch.
Plus, there are some fantastic foodies on there with inspiration abound!
Here’s a cake, cookie, errr pie that you will want to share on facebook because it’s yummy and people will be happy you posted it.
Snickerdoodle Pie w/ Cream cheese glaze
First spread some melted butter on your crust…
Sprinkle yumminess all over the crust…

Then fill your shell with the batter…

Cover that whole thing with yummy syrup…
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar all over that guy…

It’s all about the gaze, isn’t it?

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?

    I love all the goodies you make!! You are amazing but my most favorite are the brownie cones with the peanut butter frosting!!!!!! Everyone should try them they are heavenly!! so thank you thank you!!

  2. Shannon

    I totally "like" your pie. Looks very yummy. My BFF and I were just making fun of a mutual acquaintance on FB the other day. All she does is take pictures of herself with her boyfriend and she always talks about how awesome he is and how she is so blessed to have his love, etc, etc….BLECH!! It's quite sickening, but makes for some nice laughs!

    I also hate gym updates, especially from girls who I know are totally making it up and sitting on the couch stuffing their faces and watching Oprah. Whatever….

  3. Oh So Cute!!

    Your pie looks to yummy! I totally agree with everything you said. I have a cousin who has so many grammatical and spelling errors in her posts. Now I know we all slip up a few times but hers are always full of errors. She also tells us all about her ex-husband/baby daddy and how aweful he is.

  4. Debbie

    Ok, so I made it this afternoon and it was delicious! I didn't have pie crusts on hand, so I just left it out and made it in a 9-inch cake pan. It reminded me of a cinnamon roll. I think I'm going to have a very yummy breakfast tomorrow!

  5. mad.amyt

    lol… i stopped posting because of all of those reasons.. i love pics and keeping in touch too! this looks yummy as usual!

  6. angie c

    I am soooo laughing at this post…because today I actually quoted "Ice Ice Baby" as my status on FB. one of the few times I have done a song quote… lol 🙂 I know you totally want to be my friend now 🙂

  7. Sue

    My least favorite facebook posts are when people air their dirty laundry. Just yesterday a facebook "friend" posted a rant about how her stepson doesn't appreciate her, etc., etc…I couldn't believe it. I'm sure her posting that as her status really improved their relationship!?!
    I think I am going to like this pie more than the cookie! 🙂 It looks like a giant cookie, only better! Amazing!

  8. Elle

    I definitely agree with your feelings on Facebook posts!! I really hate it when people post about losing weight. Friend of mine posted a picture of herself noting how she looked 3 weeks after she had a baby. That makes me sick! I have no kids and I'm still not that skinny, but trying! guess I should be happy for her but I'd rather people keep it to themselves. As my dad always said "life isn't fair". I never understand the lyrics either. Oh and the snickerdoodle looks great too!!

  9. Les rêves d'une boulangère (Brittany)

    Looks so delicious! I really would love to bite into this right now…
    I think it would shut anyones complaints up !


    Love the pie -need to make it ASAP!

    I hate the same facebook posts – I had to hide one person b/c every day they would post that they were finally going to tackle the laundry. I mean seriously, that is worthy of posting to everyone? Just get off the computer and do the d$@n laundry!

  11. Kelli

    There's a girl right now who [for whatever reason, I'm sure she's said and I didn't read it] doesn't have a car right now. EVERY post is her whining about being bored at home because she doesn't have a car. An occasionally, she's passive-aggresively guilts people when someone visits or takes her somewhere, like "I'm Soooo glad so-and-so came and rescued me from my house!" Um, you're a grown woman. No car=your fault.
    And I can't believe you didn't make your own crust! MOTY indeed. 🙂

  12. barb

    Add random music videos, how awesome someone's husband/kids is/are to your list! All of your "gripes" make me crazy too, plus a few of my own 🙂

  13. Coordination Queen

    I blocked all of the people who make stupid status updates. I used to just skim them and get annoyed… Then i found the block feature and my life has been so much better! :). I'm so very tempted to make this right now.

  14. Joanne

    I have some med school classmates who seriously update their facebook statuses constantly with what color they just painted their nails. And apparently, they paint and repaint their nails multiple times. Every night. Gag!

    Oh but this pie. Not gag-worthy. So not gag-worthy. Delicious in fact.

  15. sabriena

    I'm so going to make this! Vague facebook status annoy me to no end! I also can't stand when people leave things on each others walls like ' oh I love you so much' when they live in the same house! Or when they wish each other happy anniversary, hello attention seeker.

  16. April

    I must admit… I totally skipped the diatribe… I was lured in my the delicious looking photos! I'm SOOO making this pie (and soon)!

    I'm gonna go back and read the whole post now…

  17. egbkid

    Yummy! This looks delicious, i am sure it would disappear in my house!
    I agree with the annoying Facebook posts, i have the crazy annoying ones blocked so i only see them when i want to 🙂

  18. navygreen

    I love this! I can imagine how fantastically yummy your house smelled while it was making/baking! Mmmm! 😀

    My worst FB offender is my sis-in-law. Every day it's the same ol' "*sigh* What more can go wrong?"-type of post, and she wants EVERYONE to comment and ask what's up. STABBITY!

  19. cookies and cups

    Debbie ~
    thanks for the catch! Yes, another 1/4 cup butter is needed for the batter..I changed the recipe!
    Thanks so much!!!!

  20. Ann

    very funny post. I have such a love/hate relationship with FB. gotta look at it often but I hate that I do. I am all about anything snickerdoodle. I'll be making this soon!!

  21. Patti

    So…if I make this yummy looking pie/cake/cookie and share it on facebook (because there's no way I'd share in real life bwahaha) you don't want me to post "made snickerdoodle pie today" LOL Instead I will post how I loathe the gym and rather spend my time baking (and eating) 🙂 I will include a photo of said pie taken close up…not in front of my bathroom mirror, from way up high, at a slight angle. 😉 All the while singing along with Vanilla Ice.

    Have I ever mentioned how much I love your blog and your attitude. It's so real life. I love it!

  22. Debbie

    I love your pet peaves! I share many of the same ones!

    Question on the recipe: I was thinking of making this today and I saw that you call for 1/4 cup butter in the syrup and the batter, but the list only has 1/4 cup softened butter. Is the ingredient list wrong, or is it not supposed to be in the syrup?

  23. The Sneaky Mommy

    Seriously, are we friends with the same.exact.people? My real favorites are the people who quote every single sentence their children say. Yes, we get it…all of our kids talk. I'm not really that cynical…but seriously?
    That pie looks like something super amazing that I would stuff in my face while reading those annoying posts. It would totally ease the pain of those skinny girl posts! 🙂 Thanks for the laughs today!

  24. TheWaageWaay

    The people who post picture after picture of themselves, that they took. All of them have the same pose holding the camera out above them (my theory is this makes them look thinner because the gym DOES suck)usually one hand on the hip (if full body)and their head tilted to the side. ENOUGH already. I'm sure we know what you look like. Ok..done ranting…

  25. Holly

    I LOVE this! Everything you said about Facebook posts is EXACTLY what I think!! lol : ) Lovin this scrumptious dessert too! YUM
