Snickerdoodle Blondies

finished snickerdoodle blondies

Are you in the mood for some sweet, gooey cinnamon bars? Do you have a half hour? (Well, you will need a little bit of time to let them cool). But this is such an easy recipe, and it turned out so well that only 3 pieces remained after I took these to a rehearsal.

Step 1 is preheat the oven to 350 degrees and get out a 13×9 pan. The original recipe called for an 8×8, but I knew that would never be enough, so I doubled it (keep in mind that the link to the original recipe site will include non-doubled amounts).

Step 2 involves melting a cup of butter. I usually do this via stovetop, so that once I remove the melted butter from the heat, I can use the same pot as a mixing bowl. You could also melt the butter in the microwave if you prefer.

Step 3 is to remove the pot with the melted butter from the heat. Add in 2 cups of brown sugar (remember to always measure brown sugar by packing it into the cup and measuring the packed amount).

Step 4 is to beat in 2 eggs (make sure the butter and sugar mixture has cooled a little).

Step 5 is to add in 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract (always use real vanilla–none of that imitation stuff. Yes, it is pricier, but it’s worth it!) Also mix a pinch of salt (you won’t even notice if you leave this out) and 2 cups of flour.

Step 6 is to pour the batter into a prepared pan (prepare it by spraying it with cooking spray).

Step 7 is to mix about 2/3 cup of granulated sugar with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon in a small bowl.

I used a cereal bowl to mix the sugar and cinnamon

Step 8 is to sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top of the batter. Try to cover all of the top. Then bake for about 22 minutes. Test for doneness by sticking a toothpick into the blondies. If it comes out clean, they’re ready. Of course, it’s perfectly ok to have your blondies be a little chewier!

The original recipe goes by a slightly different name (Cinnamon Sugar Blondies), has a smaller yield size, and can be found here:
