Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I was making these snickerdoodle bars for a Christmas party and had to share the recipe with you. I love dessert bars because they’re so easy! I came across this recipe over the summer and have made it several times. Although, I almost choked reading the ingredient list and reading how much butter and sugar went into these, I can tell you that it is so worth it! They are delicious!
2 2/3 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp. cinnamon, divided
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature or softened slightly
1 tbsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. sugar
What you’ll do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly grease 9×13″baking pan and set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.
Beat butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. 3-5 minutes.
Add eggs one at time, then add vanilla.
On low speed, add flour mixture a little at a time until just combined.
Spread batter evenly into baking dish. The batter will be a little thick so spread carefully. 🙂
In small bowl, mix 2 tsp. cinnamon and sugar until combined and sprinkle over batter.
Bake for 25-30 minutes (until a toothpick in the center comes out clean).
