What do you do when you are moving in approximately 3 days, have a full pantry, and need to pack everything into a Volkswagon Jetta? You bake of course! Moving day is upon us and I have lots to do. I was going through my refrigerator and pantry today to see what kinds of stuff have overstayed their welcome and I noticed I had a bunch of eggs left. I was in no mood to go to the grocery store so I perused my spices and baking supplies and decided on these snickerdoodle blondies. Not only are they helping me get rid of a few eggs but they taste sooo good. They are chewy and have a delicate, crunchy top from the sugar. In between trips to the car I keep munching on these. I think I need to get them out of my apartment pronto, otherwise I will eat them all without even realizing it. Luckily tonight is girls night! Sorry friends if you read this and I spoiled the “surprise” of tonight’s treat… oops! They are too good that I can’t possibly wait until tomorrow to share them on my blog. Back to packing….
