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 am going to slice this pie tomorrow – it looks great and the bits I have tasted that were falling off taste great! I think that the recipe could make two pies, though. My oven would agree. Quite a bit ran over . I love cinnamon, though, and fully expect to make this again and again – but will split it between two pie crusts next time! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

  2. robota bob

    i’m all about the pie; sounds delicious but i’m confused about one thing. step 1. says *In bowl mix all ingredients together and spoon over baked pie.* so, you bake the pie shell first and then fill with the snickerdoodly stuff? please reply! want to make!

    1. shelly

      That first step is a typo! So sorry! When I switched my recipes over to printable format it looks like it grabbed a weird portion of my text and added it in, disregard that step altogether, I updated the recipe! Thanks so much!

  3. Debbie

    I’m so tired of the people who say the can’t stand the drama some people post. But they are the only ones posting drama. People, life isn’t all about YOU and your probs. We all have em, we just don’t tell the world every single one of em. GOooossssh!

  4. Stephanie

    I’m even more late to this blog! Just found ya and lovin’ it. My all time fav posts:
    “You have been tagged on the good looking train. If you think your friends are also good lookin’ put this is your FB status. *****>>>>***>> ” Blah blah blah and it goes on for daaaaaays.

    Anyway, love this recipe. I’ll be trying it real soon. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Star from Star's Flour Power

    Your post tirade is freaking hilarious! I just discovered your site. Love it and grabbed a button. This is a recipe I will be trying out very soon since I am a sinker-doodle lover. As far as FB goes…well the whole "prenatal workout" makes me want to cry when I read it. When I was pregs the last thing I thought about was working out…and there are a few more that I probably shouldn't mention. 😉

  6. Julia

    My step dad defriened me on fb b/c I share about my kids poop too much. What, that's a bad thing?! JOKES! I know I know, TMI. LOVE anything snickerdoodle!

  7. Anonymous

    ;3; It is not completely true. I truly like the gym. o.o Though I don't go because I can't afford it at the moment.. And I never got why people posted so much things too.. However I rather hear all those things any days instead of the teenage posts about drinking and drugs and..the sex.. -shudder-

  8. Avanika [YumsiliciousBakes]

    Oh lol, gulity as charged, I'm one of the over sharers on FB. That pie looks awesome though, can't wait to try it!

  9. trooppetrie

    oh my goodness i am going to have to think of some doozies to share on facebook, okay since we are not friends let me share here.
    Fried green beans were a BIG yuck but the 20% military discount and customer service rocked!
    Now I wish it was a snake, my kitchen floor is soaked. The hose came off the ice maker, I knew I heard something

    Stop splashing fish guts around my lunch Our fish have now had there eyeballs popped out, homeschooling is great
    We are making chocolate body scrub and it smells yummy

  10. Karis

    Your diatribe is so dead-on! In addition to everything you mentioned, the things that drive me crazy are "re-post if you love your daughter, hate cancer, etc" and people who give virtual gifts.

  11. Keke

    LOL LOL LOL LOL Your post made me giggle and it's all so true and I hate it when people use LOL after everything they say esp since it's really not funny and certainly not enough to laugh out loud! Come on learn a new acronym!!! Then we can add all your peeves to my list along with stalkers…I actually have friends who think they know my every move by watching my post which are minimal and then comment on how 'long' I must have been online!!! eeeerrrkkk…. sorry, tried to stop my rant and it got out of control! 'LOL'? not really.
    Love your blog, I actually found your blog by way of someone elses post about you, and something about lamb cupcakes?…I'm so glad, love the realness, always keep it, and now I'm off to find those lamb cupcakes…love absolute the awesomeness of all your yummy creations and the clarity of your process! You should have your own food network show.

    XO Keke

    i have no use for facebook abusers–it seems like i get annoyed more often than i'm amused.
    regardless, this is one heck of a stellar pie!

  13. April

    Me again… I swear I'm not stalking you 🙂 I just wanted to let you know that I made this pie… WOW! I ended up skipping the cream cheese glaze in favor of vanilla ice cream. It was absolutely DELICIOUS!

  14. Kristan

    Totally like the pie.

    And I have, in fact, quoted Vanilla Ice on Facebook. And Napoleon Dynamite. I'm just classy like that.

    You forgot something on your "gripe" list. People who post hypocritical "quotes". You know…the friend that does nothing but complain posts a quote from Martha Washington about being optimistic. SERIOUSLY???

    Sigh. When are they going to let you and I rule the land?

  15. Raina

    Right there with you about the annoying posts. I am not on Facebook but my daughter reads them to me and we both laugh. One of them was "opened my windows today to let the fresh air in"….really…lol

    Your pie looks wonderful. It looks almost like a cinamon roll; maybe, you should brag about it on

  16. Barbara

    You are so funny! And that is so true! I sometimes feel like screaming when I see what people lay out there for everyone in the world to see! ye Gods.

    But I sure am loving this snickerdoodle pie…very different and very tasty!

  17. Nicole

    I fell the same way!!! I can't STAND the people who talk about their exercise routine or that they are going for a run, or how many calories they burned. I could go on, but you summed it up for me and I loved it! Although, I think I may love this pie even more.. going to make it, and post it on fb! thanks!

  18. Emily

    Least favorite FB post EVER–

    "Just passed a kidney stone" with accompanying picture of said stone on a piece of toilet paper!!!!!!

  19. Holly

    LOVE this post!!! My SIL is out to make everyone think everything is soooo wonderful-oh my gosh then few weeks or so later I'll hear how awful this was or that was…drives me crazy!!! lol This pie might drive me crazy til I make it…;)

  20. Anne

    This recipe looks soooooooo good! Gotta try it soon! Yes, I agree with you on the FB baloney. I have a friend in Texas (of all places :)) who posts political rants all the time. And his rants are really long and very opinionated. If you disagree with him, he always wants to get into a big debate on the subject. So I have learned to hit the ignore button. Then there are those who love to post photos of themselves or the ones who post where they have recently "checked in" to, like a restaurant, bar, etc. WHO CARES!!!! Ok, I'm done 🙂

  21. Erin

    That just looks heavenly! And you are a hoot about FB! But you are so right. I could care less what people ate for dinner or where they are going =o)

  22. Kimberly Horn

    Love. Love this post. Love your treats. I wish I didn't love to hate those kind of FB posts so much or I might just "Hide" them to save me those daily rants myself!

  23. Anita Kehn

    I had to laugh over the crazy Facebook posts. I don't have anything to do with Facebook because I do not have the time. I'd rather be Mom of the year in the eyes of my children and that means staying off Facebook and also spending a minimal time online. I think too much time is wasted online. I know it all has its place but really…

  24. Mindy


    This will go in my "can't wait to try this!" notebook.

    And, I'm with you on the FB thing…but yet I love it too.

    I try to be witty (and sometimes fail) or post the kid quips (which are almost always funny). The TMI things make me cringe – I've discovered the "hide" button a few times!

  25. RosieP

    Let's not forget the FB posts where somebody waters your Farmville plants! Talk about having too much time on your hands! ROFL

    This pie is on my Must Bake Now list.
