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?

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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?

  7. 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
