I considered popping by Starbucks but that would mean $10 out of pocket between my coffee and my new favorite Toffeedoodle cookie. Instead, I decided to go home and make myself a latte and snack. A quick turn about the internet made me decide to give Snickerdoodle Loaf a try. It’s not a toffeedoodle cookie but it would have to do.
Winter weather leaves me craving a warm beverage every minute of every day. There are few moments you won’t find me with a cup of coffee or tea cupped in my chilly fingers. Often, a cuppa is enough of a treat but sometimes, you want something to nibble while you sip.
A quick look in the pantry revealed that I had all the ingredients on hand and 45 minutes later, I had a slice of deliciousness to enjoy with my latte. Perfect.
