Chewy Snickerdoodle Bars

Chewy Snickerdoodle Bars

Soft and chewy Snickerdoodle Bars are as effortless as spreading batter into a pan and showering with cinnamon and sugar…half the work of the popular cookies with the same yummy flavor and texture!
Back to these Snickerdoodle Bars, though. They are so good and so easy, y’all! Making Snickerdoodles in cookie form can be rather time-consuming, since each cookie has to be scooped and rolled in cinnamon sugar. But these brilliant bars? Simply mix up the batter, spread it into a pan (since it’s too thick to pour), sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (a heavy hand is encouraged), bake, and slice! Not quite as fast to make as that mug cake, mind you, but this recipe produces enough to share with 20 or so of your closest friends, so I’d consider that a good trade.
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  1. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F. Grease a 9- by 13-inch baking pan with butter (or spray with cooking spray); set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to stir butter until creamy. Blend in sugar and brown sugar and beat on medium-high speed for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, and vanilla, and blend until smooth.
  3. Mix in the flour mixture until well combined. Spread in an even layer in the prepared pan. In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into 20 bars.
