The other day my daughter and I made Snickerdoodle Bars. And my life was changed forever. These cookie bars are deliciously chewy and have a slightly crunch on top thanks to the yummy cinnamon sugar topping.
Don’t they look incredible?? This is hands down the best treat I’ve made in a long time. At least since the Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookies we made a few months ago.
A few weeks ago the KitchenAid Stand Mixer that I had ordered finally arrived. (Cue heavenly lights). I have been itching to bake ever since! These Snickerdoodle bars were the perfect excuse to get to use that beautiful machine, and to start teaching my five year old daughter how to use it as well!
Snickerdoodles are the throw back taste that takes me back to childhood. Enjoying a tall glass of milk with that chewy cinnamony goodness was pure heaven, and I love that I can now share these experiences with my own kids.
- 2⅓ cups all purpose flour
- 1¼ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1¼ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 13x9" baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter and the sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, beating on low speed until incorporated.
- Beat in the vanilla.
- Beat in the dry ingredients on low speed until just combined.
- Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and spread as evenly as possible, as it is quite sticky. It will spread out as it bakes.
- Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the batter.
- Bake for about 25 minutes.
- Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour before cutting into squares and devouring.
