Snickerdoodle Bars

Cinnamon love in a bar!



We love Snickerdoodle Cookies in my family!   They're on the list of Christmas cookies every year, but you don't have to wait for a holiday to enjoy them.  This recipe has all the flavor and goodness of the cookie, wrapped up in a simple bar...no rolling individual cookies!   How can that be bad, right? 

I've even heard of people who don't like the cookie, but absolutely love the bar.  I've made these a few times now, and they never disappoint!

These are very easy and quick to make, and taste like a cinnamon roll.  It's the perfect Snickedoodle bar in taste and texture, and the glaze gives it that added touch. 

The first time I made these was last year, when my son and his family visited.  So, for me, it's a fairly new recipe.  They were such a hit with everyone, that I've made them many times since then.   The recipe isn't in my old Betty Crocker Cookbook, it's from her website.  I tell you, B.C. has still got it going on...best recipes!

Ingredients:

Bars
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
 
Cinnamon Filling
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
 
Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
 
Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
 
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the vanilla. Add in the dry ingredients and beat on low until combined.
 
Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan. Spread evenly. (Use your hands if needed to spread evenly.) Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the batter. Drop teaspoon sized amounts of the remaining batter over the cinnamon sugar layer.
 
Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Cool completely.
 
In a small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients. Drizzle over the bars.
 
Cut and serve.
