Vanilla Pudding Snickerdoodles

Yesterday I did something sneaky and deceptive.  But I had to y’all.  I’m forced into these situations.  As I was baking these Vanilla Pudding Snickerdoodles, I really needed to taste test one.  I have to make sure my recipes don’t suck.  But Princess P has learned when the stand mixer comes out, something she likes to eat is getting made.  And when the timer goes off on the microwave that means “It’s done mommy, it’s done!!”  She is all up in the business in the kitchen when I’m baking.  She’s not missing nothing.

But I didn’t really want her to have a cookie at 10:30 in the morning.  She hadn’t really had breakfast, giving her a cookie just didn’t seem like the right mother decision.  So I got crafty.  In a moment when she wasn’t paying attention to me, I grabbed a cookie, hid it in my palm behind my phone {thank you Apple for making somewhat larger phones that are great for hiding things} and dashed into the bathroom before she could follow after me!

So, yeah.  That’s me.  Hiding out from an almost 3 year old.  In my bathroom.  Eatin’ a cookie.

I’m awesome.

But so are the cookies so it was worth it.

    Oh yummy! I just recently started experimenting with pudding cookies (have a recipe for some coming to the blog soon! ;) ). They are SO good! And Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. :)

    Haha, I had to laugh when I read your post, then wipe my chin from the drool! You could’ve been talking about my 3 year old! He knows that when I pull out the stand mixer, we’re doing something yumm-o! He’s also getting pretty good at operating my mixer…

    I truly enjoyed the bathroom cookie photo op :)
