One cookie I loved to make with my Mimi each Christmas was the Snickerdoodle. I loved forming them in little balls and rolling them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Every time my Mimi would turn her back: my sister and I would be digging in the cookie dough and eating LOTS of it. Years later we asked Mimi if she saw us digging in the cookie dough and she never did! We were sneaky little girls. :)
When I saw a recipe for Snickerdoodle White Chocolate Blondies on one of my favorite blogs, Sally's Baking Addiction (http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/), I KNEW I had to make them. They were everything I thought they would be...gooey, cinnamon-y, white-chocolate-y, melt in your mouth-y. I had 3 in one night!
I altered Sally's recipe only slightly by baking it in a 9 by 9 inch pan, only because my other 9 by 13 inch pan's were being used. This ending up being meant-to-be because the result was an extra thick gooey blondie.
