I’m so excited to share an awesome recipe AND a fabulous cookbook written by one of my friends!!
It’s FULL of recipes — 195 to be exact.
I LOVE cookbooks like that because I can really sit and look through them. Am I the only one who loves to curl up with a cookbook like it’s a novel?
Anyways — the recipes range from breakfasts, cocktails, lunches, main dishes, and a fabulous section on desserts. If you are looking for a cookbook that will get you through every day to day occasion, this is IT!!
I have so many recipes marked to try –Macaroni and Cheese Soup, Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, Baked Barbequed Onion Rings, and Mango Margaritas, to name a few.
But today is about dessert!!
After looking through the Sweet Treats section, I decided to share these Snickerdoodle Blondies. Snickedoodles are my son’s favorite cookie, and I couldn’t pass up a chance to make him smile. Lori’s recipe is for an 8×8 pan, but I knew those wouldn’t last long enough around here, so I doubled the recipe for a 9×13. I also added a glaze, which you can feel free to omit. I believe that too much is never enough though, so a glaze was definitely happening!!
These bars are definitely going to the top of my Potluck list. They are the perfect thickness and chewiness and taste AMAZING!! If these don’t impress, I don’t know what will.
Make sure you scroll down below the recipe — Lori is giving a Recipe Girl cookbook to one of you!!
