I packed lightly for my trip to Ocean City (NJ, not MD people!) because part of the way I was traveling by train. I didn't exactly have room in my luggage for baked goods, and Lord knows this side of the family loves their baked goods, so we picked up a few things at the store and I baked two different bar cookies. We had just one requirement: whatever I made needed to be easily packed in a cooler to be eaten on the beach. No problem.
First up was a batch of Snickerdoodle Blondies from The Baker Chick. These truly are snickerdoodle cookies in bar form. YUM.
A house by the beach, sea, sand, surf, family, & some old-fashioned home cooking -- it doesn't get much better than that :)
