Snickerdoodle Pie


Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies and I never imagined that I could get the taste of a snickerdoodle cookie in the form of a pie! I saw this recipes over at Baking Bites and I still couldn’t imagine a pie tasting as good as the cookie, but I was wrong. The pie has all the cinnamon and sugar you could ask for plus more! Each layer has its own flavor found in a snickerdoodle cookie that comes together with each bite.  I was hoping to make my own pie crust, but found myself with little time in between all my school work, so I settled for a store bought pie crust. If you are a snickerdoodle lover, this pie is for you!
