The role of Peabody will be played by…

Sometimes I get little polls sent to me on email or via Facebook. They ask questions, sometimes silly ones, about your life so that people can get to know you better. I am always stumped by the question, “what actress would play you in a movie about your life?”
First off, if someone made a movie about my life it would either A. Go straight to DVD. Or B. Become a made for TV movie on either Lifetime or the Hallmark Channel. So that really cuts down on my actress choice. Because really, does Kate Winslet want to be in a made for TV movie, I think not. And though if I were picking a body to play me I would choose Kate Winslet, the reality is (other than she looks nothing like me) is that as lovely as she is as a person, she is not quirky enough to play me. Let’s face it, I really need someone who is a little off center.
In a face recognition program I match up with Hayden Panettiere (the cheerleader from Heros), she would so have to pack on some serious pounds ala Renee Zellweger for Bridget Jone’s Diary to play me. She is far too famous now to pack on the pounds for a made for TV movie. They don’t give out Oscars for that. And now a days the only reason to show yourself naked (tastefully) or gain weight is to try and get and Oscar.
Oh well, I guess I still can’t answer that question. What about you? Who would play you in a movie of your life?
Speaking of things that should be in a movie. This super yummy Snickerdoodle Blondie. I had a reader write me and tell me that though she was a fan of the refund muffin she would like for me to make a new Snickerdoole baked good. So off I went. These are something I so wish I didn’t make. I know that the pan, the whole pan, will be going in my stomach. No amount of gym time will be making up for me eating the whole pan, but darn it, these are good. Especially warm, with slightly melty ice cream.

  1. i made your refund muffins a while ago and they were really good. can’t wait to try these. i don’t know who i would want to play me in a movie either. maybe cameron diaz but that choice is all wrong. :)

  2. These look absolutely divine!

  3. Oooo…when I saw that first picture I knew this had to be a snickerdoodle blondie! Soooo yummy looking. I think I’d go with Anne Hathaway in a movie about me…though more in her Princess Diary look than Bride Wars.

  4. Yep, this is brilliant. Another thing makes it to my “to bake” list, which is like 700 strong (500 from your site probably).

  5. Oh my God – these look sinful! I’ll be bookmarking this recipe for sure.

  6. Oh my, snickerdoodles are my favorite! I can’t wait to try these,

  7. WOW! How cool you have snickerdoodle blondie recipe & Julia from a dozen flours has one on hers. I’ve made hers MANY times in the past 6 months or so. Everyone loves ‘em. I’m slightly famous amongst my children’s friends & their teachers for them. I can’t wait to give your version a try! Thanks for sharing the recipe! I’m printing it out!

  8. This looks amazing. I have to make it.

    Also, I went to Bakespace for the first time and there you are with your peanut butter cup cake, right on the front page! You rule.

  9. Yummmmmmm awesome creation. I’ll be trying these! I wonder if you can taste the mascarpone cheese at all? I’m sure it adds something yummy.

  10. Oh Dear, I cannot even think of anybody who would want to play my “crazy” life, people get tired and exhausted just watching me overload my days…. I love the Blondies….yum!

  11. Now, these look dangerous. I’d be afraid that I would eat the whole pan if I made these!

  12. Snickerdoodles are famous in my family. My brother, who is not a dessert eater, can polish off a whole batch with no problem. Since I don’t love making individually shaped cookies, this is a great solution, thanks!

  13. I have just made some blondies which were the first time for me but they were more cakey these look so good I have to try these. I think you would be more famous than kate Winslet if they made a movie about you especially if they film you when cleaning the bathroom ;) Thanks for sharing this yummy desset

  14. I’m a fan of the snickerdoodle and this looks so gooey and yum!

  15. So decadent Snickerdoodles and icecream …although my daughter could be played by Scarlet Johanssen I have to be played by Phoebe from Friends…Lisa Kudrow..I am told we look alike:D

  16. Snickerdoodle blondies? They look ab fab!
    I think Dawn French should play the starring role in the award winning comedy of my life!

  17. ummm! i am sitting at home with flu and a runny nose – I am wishing that plate was in my reach because I know this will make me feel better!

  18. How yummy!!! Two fabulous desserts in one!

  19. Oh those blondies look good. Have no idea who would play me in a movie…..I like Angelina Jolie but we don’t look alike at all!!!!

  20. BLONDIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Wow these look delicious! I wonder if I could make a pan tomorrow and then promptly leave town without them? It may be a plan!

    I think Kristi Alley could play me. She’s not getting many good movie rolls anyway, and if she’s in one of her fatter stages all the better!

  22. Holy crap!!!! This is just the type of thing I’ve been craving! I’ve got to make some of these… diet be damned!

    Looks incredible!

  23. Oh, my goodness! The picture with the ice cream = instant craving. I have to try to make these gluten free!

  24. Oh man, you are such a diet buster! These look amazing, especially with the ice cream!

  25. This is awesome – the joy of snickerdoodles in bar form a la mode!

  26. What a great transformation of an old favorite!! I love cookies that can be made into bars!!

  27. Wow! You’ve just taken two of my favorite desserts and – bam – combined them into one AMAZING looking dessert. I need these right now. Oh man, the snickerdoodle blondies look absolutely amazing. I need to stop myself from drooling over the pictures now.

  28. Snickerdoodle blondies sound amazing! And with the ice cream, wow!

  29. how freakin amazing is that? I love snickerdoodles and those blondies look amazing. I can’t wait to try these and will be adding lots of nutmeg and cinnamon. I wonder if you can sub some of the mascarpone and egg for eggnog??


  30. This looks so good! I have a question though–what’s the Mascarpone cheese do? Like in regular snickerdoodles, you don’t need that ingredient. I’m just curious. I want to make this–your pictures are making me hungry.

  31. These really sound great! I am more of a chocolate chip girl but I have a friend who adores snickerdoodles and if he sees this, I will surely be making them.

  32. You wish you’d never made it… I wish I’d never seen it…. Oh I’m so making this soon! ;P

  33. Oh god, I’ve been tagged so many times on Facebook for that 25 things about me meme, or whatever it is… I don’t even want to think about it! I’d much rather make blondies like these- They sound fantastic!

  34. I’m drinking my snickerdoodle hot chocolate right now and thinking about how well it would go with those blondies.

  35. With ice cream on top!? These blondies look so so good! Who would play me in a movie!? That’s one heck of a hard question? Why do people do that to themselves? Is it some sort of wish fulfillment thing? I dunno. Too hard a question for my brains right now.

  36. These look awesome…esp with that ice cream!

  37. These look really good. I wish I had a piece right now.

  38. The Mascarpone cheese is used for texture. So that these are chewy like Blondies are. If you make them like the cookies then all you will have is bar cookies.

  39. yum…snickerdoodle anything is a good thing in my book. i am with you on eating the whole pan.

  40. Well on a looks basis I get told I look like Natalie Portman alot, both short, petite, same hair/eye color.

    However I guess it would be Tina Fey in that I am somewhat of a “Liz Lemon” I am a dork, always have sarcastic coments, love food, and am a class clown type. However I am married.

  41. Can’t think why anyone would want to make a movie of my life, so I guess I’m stuck playing myself. Snickerdoodle blondies are a fabulous idea! You are a dessert genius.

  42. WOW these look absolutely amazing, thanks for another yummy-looking recipe. I’ve made several of your goodies and they’ve all worked out great. I can’t wait to try these!!

    Just wanted to say thanks for creating such a fun, lively and yummy blog!

  43. It’s clear that these are the equal of, if not better than, the refund muffins. You devil, you!

  44. Holy cow, Gracie.. blondies are my favorite.. give me a brownie and a blondie and I’ll choose the blondie every time. Give me a chocolate chip cookie and a snickerdoodle and I’ll choose the snickerdoodle every time.

    Have I told you lately how much I heart you? :D


  45. LOL – I think if it is a movie about your life, you can choose whoever you want to be you. I reckon in the looks department, I’d get Megan Followes to play me.

    These blondies are definitely Oscar-worthy – they’d be going straight down my throat as well.

  46. Take a look at those…mmmmmmm. Forget which star; you play youself!! These are outrageous!

  47. You’ve made a lot of things over the last couple of years that I would label “pure genius” but this seriously goes to a whole new level!

    I would let Ali Larter play me… but she’d have to gain 30 lbs and work on her Texas accent – it wasn’t believable in Friday Night Lights and that just won’t cut it!

  48. i pick natalie portman. and a tray of these, with cinnamon ice cream. awesome bars. :)

  49. I think if they made a movie of my life, it would be canceled half way through do to lack of a plot lol. I’m such a boring person.

    I love Snickerdoodles. Even better is when they are topped with Ice-cream.

  50. Oh, man that looks SO GOOD.

    I’d love Catherine Zeta Jones to play me. IN MY DREAMS. But still, a girl CAN dream, right?
