Snicker what?

There are times I am sure I live under a rock. I’ve never tasted a snickerdoodles and had no concept of what kind of cookie it was, but it turns out I am not the only one as I found out Saturday night.

I put the question to the soccer team as we sat around post game chatting and eating birthday cake.

The Spanish guy says, “Is that a dog?” And it turns out it sort of is.

A Schnoodle is a combination of a Schnauzer and a Poodle. Both of these dogs are among the most popular dog breeds, so it’s no surprise that someone would combine them for the best of both worlds. The Schnauzer is energetic, loyal, and a little feisty. Often referred to as a Snickerdoodle.

Then the English guy says, “Is that a sex move?”

And the entire table erupted in laughter. Lots and lots of laughter. And NO one wanted to look that up on their phones but…. it turns out it’s mostly not.

Urban Dictionary states that Snickerdoodling is the act of thrusting your pelvis forward slowly whilst standing upright. Can be easily confused with a pelvic thrust, but it is usually done without the Snickerdoodler’s knowledge of the action.
Another dissimilarity is that when a person does a “Pelvic Thrust”, they plant their feet and drive their crotch in a violent motion. Snickerdoodling is more of a relaxing rocking motion, in which a person will switch from standing on their heels to rock forward onto their toes whilst committing the act.
This action, Snickerdoodling, is almost always triggered by a tasty food that the person consumes. Scientists speculate that this is because most tasty foods are bad for you, and the rocking motion of the slow pelvic thrust somehow eases the digestion of the said food. The most common food to trigger Snickerdoodling is the source of the act’s name, the Snickerdoodle.
The word originated in a High School in Northern California in 2005, witnesses to it’s creation claiming that it was a small group of Sophomores that were enjoying hot Snickerdoodles that one of them had prepared in a cooking class.
The act of Snickerdoodling is in no way vulgar and is considered a high praise to whom ever prepared the food that induces it.

The act of baking and/or eating snicker doodles.
“We had a great time last night baking snickerdoodling. They tasted so great!”

Person 1: “And I was all like, Yeah and he was all…What the hell are you doing?”
Person 2: “…I guess I’m Snickerdoodling, didn’t really notice.”
Person 1: “Stop that.”
Person 2: “I can’t, this cookie is too damn good!”

So, it’s not quite what English guy thought, but no one looked it up (until I did for the blog poat), and the vein of the conversation continued. A husband said to his wife, innocently enough, “you’ve never made me snickerdoodles” and she replied “I’ve given them to you lots” and the English guy laughed and then we all caught on and the laughter roared again.

So much laughter over a cookie! It was really the icing on the cake. Well, no, the whipped cream was the icing on the cake, and that was in itself perfect. That someone went to all the trouble to bake (my favourite kind) of cake and ice it with whipped cream — well, that was the cat’s meow. Fortunately, no one sang happy birthday, but there were many toasts and much clinking of glasses. And then we got back to snickerdoodles.

Any guesses on who is the English guy🤣

Have I mixed enough metaphors? And now I bet you know a lot more about snickerdoodles than you did but maybe not. I asked my much older and wiser cousin (it’s a thing and if I don’t say it then she says it so I might as well) if she had a recipe for them and she said no. I checked at work and no one had a recipe and we have a lot of experienced bakers at work so… drumroll please. I think they aren’t a Canadian prairie thing. That is just a hypothesis based off of a small sampling of the population so help me out here.

I haven’t done a poll in ages so I am hoping that the techie side of this worked and that you will all play along with me. If it doesn’t work perhaps you’d be so lovely and kind to add a comment about your intimate relationship with snickerdoodles or if you also live under a rock.

And there you have it. Somewhat irrelevant funny post. Just because.



I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

  1. Oh, what an education you have given me Bernie! Along with chuckles and smiles! I have heard of snickerdoodle cookies but never made them. I have a recipe for vegan “snifferdoodles”, so called because the author’s daughter mispronounced snickerdoodle when she was making maple sugar snickerdoodles and the name stuck, but that’s as far as I’ve got. I’m feeling the need to bake a batch just so I can indulge in a snickerdoodle move while munching the cookie and wait for the bemused expression from the Big Fella, so I can share the lesson!


    1. Your post cracked me up!! Snifferdoodles… I am not sure I even want to go there but when you make them I 100% want to see the movement while munching the cookie with the Big Fella giving you the side eye!! LOL. Thanks Heidi for engaging with your brand of humour. Bernie


  2. I’d never heard of snickerdoodle either, until my son-in-law brought over some Christmas cookies his mom made. I loved them and asked him what they were. He got the recipe from his mom and gave it to me… of the many reasons I’m glad he married my daughter!


    1. Are you in the southern states Ann? I would if they are more regional? I still haven’t made them, but I did end up with 2 recipes to try. Thanks for dropping in, reading and commenting.

    1. I definitely set out to make it funny so I am glad I gave you a laugh Linda. I’ve now got 2 family recipes to try so will let you know what I think of them. Bernie

    1. I also can’t see the poll or the result!! I know it’s there as others said they voted but I can’t find it. Head smack emoji! Yes I thought it was interesting how the end result of your great post sparked life in mine! Bernie

    1. Seriously – it cracked me right up! Of course the English guy maybe didn’t have that in mind! I’ve never had one either (the cookie that is) but I now have 2 recipes to try! Bernie

  3. Never heard of the word Snickerdoodle being associated with pelvic action! That is just bizarre. The cookies are very old-fashioned in that they use Cream of Tartar and Baking Soda instead of just Baking Powder. The results are different.


    1. It is a “newish” item this snickerdoodling. Apparently coined in 2005. I thought you might have a recipe – right location and era growing up. I have got a couple of family recipes. I will make them one of these days and have you out or bring them to a meeting. Bernie


  4. I’ve had snickerdoodle cookies before and, as I remember, they were pretty good. Unfortunately, I couldn’t answer your quiz because A) I’ve had them, but they aren’t a “thing” in my life, B) I’m not Canadian, and C) I don’t have a recipe.

    It sounds like you had a fun group at the table!


    1. D) my poll was unbalanced! I had fun making it but then could not for the life of me figure out how to find the results!! Ah the learning curves. The group at the table is our coed soccer team and we always have a blast, on and off the pitch. Headed to Italy next year with this group on a bike trip and to Mexico for a soccer tournament. Thanks for playing along with my silly post! Bernie


  5. I think you are correct in that they are not a ‘Canadian’ thing – but I have a person who is of direct German descent who finds these cookies his favourite of all that he could choose from! So it is a recipe from across the ocean that made its acquaintance to us by our diverse community and country. How lucky we are to be able to share!
