Apple Pie Snickerdoodles

You know how everyone has their anti-stress thing? You know, the one thing they do when they’re all discombobulated that helps them chill out? For some people, it’s cleaning {there’s actually a technical term for those people. They are called “lunatics.”}, for others it’s running or some other type of exercise {again, crazy people}.  For me, it’s baking.  I think it’s because I grew up baking with my grandma and my mom, and some of my happiest memories involve me being in the kitchen with one of them. And one of my favorite kinds of cookies that we’d make together was snickerdoodles.  I have only ever made the basic snickerdoodle recipe, and never really thought about changing it up at all until I spotted this recipe for White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles at Lil’ Luna. {Aside: If you don’t follow Lil’ Luna, you need to. Her blog is awesome. That is all.} With just a few tweaks to a basic snickerdoodle recipe, you can make crazy good cookies with all the flavors of apple pie! Anyway. That one post opened up a world of possibilities for me. I started brainstorming what other flavors would work with the cinnamon-sugary yumminess of snickerdoodles, and then it hit me. Apple. Pie. Snickerdoodles. Oh hellz yes. They are so, so delicious. I had to send a bunch over to my in-laws so that I didn’t eat the whole darn batch myself.  Crazy good cookies with all the flavors of apple pie! These are perfect cookies to add to your Thanksgiving menu — and they’re WAY easier than actually making a pie!  Apple Pie Snickerdoodles use a basic snickerdoodle recipe, just with a few tweaks. I added pumpkin pie spice into the dough and the cinnamon sugar mixture the cookies are rolled in before baking, and I folded in some chopped dried apples as well.  square3 Do you have memories of baking with your mom, grandma or other grown-up when you were little? What foods bring you back to those times when you eat them now?

    Thus, to avoid any kind of mishap that can hamper anyone’s life,
    an individual must be careful while driving and be conscious
    about the regular maintenance activities of the machineries in the work place.

    But pay careful attention to the retainer agreement.
    The suffering of a loved one from injury or injuries inflicted by
    someone in an accident is really painful and unbearable.
