I love you. I truly adore you. But do you know what would make me adore you even more? If you didn’t say bad is a synonym for good, and break down is a synonym for breaking down.
In case you were wondering, the first pair is something called an antynom okay? The latter is called different verb tenses.
We didn’t learn that stuff in English class by the way. So you can’t use I never took english class as an excuse.
Dear Blog Readers,
Thanks for sticking around + commenting even though I spend 50.9999999% of the time complaining about how much stuff I have to do.
Take break a little more seriously, please. Fall break has the word break in it for goodness sakes! All you’ve been doing the past 3 days of this so called break is homework. Please, no excuses. This happened last year too.
Dear Friend that I take for granted,
Do you remember all the Halloween nights that we ran outside in the bitter cold to knock on strangers doors to beg for candy? We would trick or treat then trade candy. I remember you never liked the bountys -a good thing too for they were one of my favorites. You always recieved my hard candy because there, we’re opposites too.
As I sit here typing this, I am reminded of those snickerdoodles that we would always make for basically everything. Every time we baked together it would be the same snickerdoodles for so long. Maybe that’s why I never baked them on my own for 4 some years -because I knew they wouldn’t taste the same.
Guess what? I baked them again and I was right. They didn’t taste the same.
Ours were always soft because you insisted on taking them out early. They were puffy, doughy, and perfect. They had little cinnamon swirls. Mine are crispy and brown.
I couldn’t help it -I tried again. This time, it was a cookie for one, in a deep dish. It wasn’t the same. Goewy, sprinkled with lots of cinnamon, but still not the same. I think it’s because you always held me back from making irrational changes to recipes. Getting rid of half of the sugar, adding too much flour, that was all me. I’m sorry okay? I’m terrible at making cookies.
// You can sub coconut oil for the butter to make this vegan.
// Don’t over bake this or else you’ll have a sandy cookie.
Single Lady Snickerdoodle
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 3-4 tbsp flour
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp sugar
- pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 375 F.
In a small baking dish, place the butter and brown sugar together. Place it in the oven until the butter is melted. Take the dish out and mix in the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and half of the cinnamon.
Using your fingers, press the dough down into a smooth layer on the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle on the rest of the cinnamon, the sugar, and the salt.
Bake for 10-14 minutes until puffy, soft, and slightly golden.
