Snickerdoodle Blondies

I craved these when I saw them up for bid in the Bloggers Bake for Hope bake sale.  So when I was outbid, I decided to cheer myself up by baking up a batch.  They were just as good as I imagined.  Soft texture, but firm and lots of cinnamon flavor.  Snickerdoodles are one of Dave's favorites and he approved.  We served them as dessert for his parents, topped with vanilla ice cream and they were wonderful.

This recipe came courtesy of Lark's Country Heart, and she fetched $35 for these babies.  I changed nothing (and wouldn't) in this recipe, so they should turn out just as perfect for you.  These would be great to take to a cook out this holiday weekend.

Snickerdoodle Blondies


2 2/3 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.

In a saucepan over low heat, melt butter and add brown sugar, stirring until smooth.  Remove from heat and beat in eggs and vanilla.

In a medium bowl, combine butter mixture and flour mixture and stir to incorporate.  You'll end up with a thick, muffin-like batter, so just stir until all the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet.

Transfer batter into a lightly greased 9 x 13 inch pan and spread evenly.

In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.  Sprinkle cinnamon sugar evenly over the pan.

Bake at 350 degree F for 23-28 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly, but cut into bars while still warm.

Makes 24 bars.

Happy Baking,
The Cookie Princess

  1. Hi Colleen, Just dropping by to tell you that this is the recipe that I posted for August 2014 Secret Recipe Club. Wonderful. I also made your Crockpot Tenderloin and the Avalanche Bars, both delicious. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week. Grandma Loy
