Snickerdoodle Blondies

Posted on

Whether you’re a fan of snickerdoodles or not, I think you will love these bars!  I personally don’t love snickerdoodles.  I’ll eat them.  Come on, cookies are my favorite food group so of course I’ll take one when offered.  But these, I love.  They are so soft and buttery sweet and just…wonderful.  I think it must be the cinnamon in them, but I think the flavor is perfect for fall!

I know from experience that they have a good shelf life–I shipped a package of them in the hot summer and they weren’t delivered for five days because of a Post Office error, but they were still fresh when the birthday girl picked them up.  So don’t be afraid to make these up in advance for holiday gatherings/gifts–they freeze great too!

Snickerdoodle Blondies

Printable recipe with picture

Cookies:
2 2/3 cups (10 oz) all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups (15 oz) brown sugar, packed
1 cup (8 oz) butter, at room temperature
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Topping:
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray 9×13-inch pan with nonstick spray, line pan with parchment and let it hang over the sides, then  spray the parchment with nonstick spray too. (The parchment is optional but creates nice handles to lift the bars out for easier cutting.) In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cream of tartar and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer (3 to 5 minutes). Mix in eggs, one at a time, then vanilla, beating until smooth. Stir in flour mixture until well blended. The batter will be thick. Spread it evenly into the prepared pan. Spray your hands with cooking spray and use them to pat the mixture down evenly. Combine the topping ingredients in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly on top of batter. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until surface springs back when gently pressed. Let pan cool completely. When ready to cut, use ends of parchment paper to lift out baked bars. Place on a cutting board. Use a large, sharp knife to cut into bars.

Makes 20 to 24 bars

  1. These look SO good!

    Not gonna lie, I had no idea what a snickerdoodle was until a few years ago. I ordered a snickerdoodle and wondered where the Snickers was.

    • I know, the name doesn’t make a lot of sense but it’s cute. Kind of like “whatchamacallit” but better. :) Funny that both those are candy bars! Well, if you take the doodle of the snickers, anywya.

    • LOL, this is an old post that I updated with ounce measurements since I just made it again and that’s how I measure my dry ingredients now- I just wanted them to be there next time I make it so I don’t have to do the math. I’ve come to like not only snickerdoodles since then, but also any cookies with ginger, which I used to dislike. Tastes change! Though I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to enjoy goat cheese. Bleck. Your snickerdoodles were amazing! As are these bars – you will love them!

  17. Snickerdoodles are one of my very favorites, these look awesome. There is a liquor called Rumchata that adds a little extra kick to snickerdoodles too!
