Snickerdoodle Bars

Snickerdoodle Bars

If you love the idea of thick and chewy cinnamon cookies, these snickerdoodle bars are for you! They are so soft and full of cinnamon flavor – I couldn’t believe how good they were! I made these for our family Easter celebration and everyone who tried them absolutely loved them. The recipe is basically a blondie recipe with some cinnamon added to the batter. The best part, though, is the cinnamon sugar topping sprinkled over the whole thing. It really gives these bars a snickerdoodle flavor. The snickerdoodle topping and the wonderful thick and chewy texture make these cookies ones you don’t want to miss.

  6. Saw these today and made them for after dinner tonight.. They are really good! I thought they were much better than the actual Snickerdoodle cookie. They do not need it but I was wondering how Biscoff spread would taste drizzled over the top. (Made to a frosting consistency) Thanks so much for posting, my family is enjoying them!
