Snickerdoodle Bars

I’ll be honest with you…I got this recipe from a blog, actually from my bestie…Kris. She found it on another blog…lol 😀

However, I’m going to post it, too. It’s that awesome. Especially if you love Snickerdoodles, and you don’t want to take the time to roll each cookie dough ball in cinnamon-sugar.

Snickerdoodle Bars
2 1/3 c flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 c butter, softened
1 1/4 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon

1 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 Tbsp milk

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of 9×13 (for a thicker bar) or 10×15 (for thinner bar). In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar and set aside In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. In your mixing bowl, bear butter until creamy. Add sugar and brown sugar. Gradually add eggs and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and Beaton low until well combined. Spoon half of batter onto pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle on cinnamon-sugar mixture. Dollop by teaspoonfuls the rest of the cookie better on top of cinnamon-sugar. Gaps are okay because this makes the marbled look. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

For glaze, combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. You need the glaze to be pourable, not too thick. Add milk as needed to get to this consistency. Drizzle over the top of bars.

My friends, Kris and Cindy, swear by baked oatmeal…so I decided to give it a go.  And here’s the recipe I ended up using.

Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

  • 1/2 c applesauce or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1 c milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 3 c quick oats
  • 1/2 c cinnamon chips
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon-sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease an 8×8 square pan.  In mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except cinnamon-sugar.  Top with cinnamon-sugar.  Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

However, my verdict is….it was pretty good, but not great.  It was best when it was warm…with butter on top (but what isn’t good with butter?…..)  I think using the smaller pan made it too thick.  I guess I should’ve waited for Kris’s recipe 😀  I’ll link you to her recipe as soon as she posts it….

Oh, how I love oatmeal cookies. The earthy cinnamon and oats, the chocolatey goodness of the slightly melted chocolate chips….mmmmm. This recipe is my collision of an old recipe that my maternal grandmother makes and another recipe I found on the internet. They’re soft, chewy, cinnamony, chocolatey, yummy. Which is why I HAD to make them this afternoon! 😀
