Snickerdoodle Blondies

If you like snickerdoodles, you will absolutely love these bars. I was thinking of my sister B when I made these bars. She loves Snickerdoodles. In fact we had tried to make a different snickerdoodle blondie recipe when she visited earlier this year. They didn’t turn out AT ALL. I wish we had tried this recipe back then so B could have tasted them. They’re delicious.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve become a HUGE cookie bar fan recently. I love the ease of just dumping the entire batch of batter into a pan and only having to listen for the timer to beep once. It’s so much easier than making multiple cookie sheets worth of cookies.

Snickerdoodle Blondies

Yield: 30 bars


2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, at room temperature
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside. In large bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth.

Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Spread evenly in prepared pan (mixture will be somewhat cookiebatter-ish). I used my wet hands to spread the batter into the pan. Combine white sugar and cinnamon in a little bowl. Evenly sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over the top of the batter.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until surface springs back when gently pressed. Cool slightly. While still warm, cut into bars with a sharp knife.

    I made these last winter and they were sooooo absolutely amazing. I purposely haven’t made them since because I would eat them all! Perfect holiday treat, aren’t they?

    OK, I have a weird question since I have texture issues.

    I assume the pumpkin portion of this is similar in texture to pie filling (hence “Pumpkin Pie” part of the name)? Or is it more cake/bar-like?

    These are so unique!

    I start drooling everytime I see those yet for some odd reason I wind up just making the plain snickerdoodle version. I think it’s the kids thinking the plain one is perfection. They’ve actually told me not to mess with the recipe.

    Hope you feel better – I suffered through the flu last month and it’s definitely amazing how quickly the crappy feelings hit you!
