Snickerdoodle Blondies

Snickerdoodles are just one of those "Oldie But Goodie" things… Like neon colors and I Love Lucy.

There's nothing like takin' a batch out of the oven and a crisp fall day and dipping them in a cup of coffee. YUM!

But of course. Instead of cookies, I took the easy route with bars. Because bars are totally the lazy way out of taking pan after pan after pan of cookies out of the oven. Whatevs.

The other day we got a HUMUNGO care package from some dear friends and guess. what. was in there. Can't guess? Geeze fine. I'll tell you.

CRISCO!!! Yup. Crisco. The miracle that makes everything good in the world.

When I opened up the package I stuck my nose in it.  I was contemplating licking it, but that would have been taking it just a little far, yes?

It's amazing how much the butter makes a difference!

Snickerdoodle Blondies

1 c. butter {or… CRISCO!!!}, at room temp. 
2 eggs
1/2 tbsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. white sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease a 9x13 pan. 

Cream the butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. Add in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir until combined. The mixture will be thick like cookie dough. Press it evenly into the prepared pan {I used a rubber spatula but you sure could use your hands} Combine the white sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle onto of the batter. Bake 25-30 minutes or until the middle has set. Cool slightly and cut into bars.

  1. Sophie, that top picture with that cluster of cinnamon + sugar is AWESOME! Love me some snickerdoodles--a truly heartwarming, comforting cookie--but made into a blondie? Now you're really cooking your way to my heart!

  2. These Look Amazing! I still to this date have never had a SnickerDoodle... "snicker".

  3. Hey Sophie! I have been following your blog for a while now, but this is the first recipe I actually tried. And it was DELICIOUS! However mine did not look nearly as pretty as yours haha. They also didn't rise much...not sure if I did something wrong or what, but I think it would've been better in a smaller pan (8x8 or 9x9 maybe??). Regardless, totally delectable! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Mmmm...these look so good I can almost taste them!

  5. Definitely yummy! I saw Jamie's comment about making it in a smaller pan so I did that...didn't seem to cook as well, so I would recommend sticking with the 13x9. There was plenty of dough.

  6. Hey little mama! I didn't know how often your make it to Ashton's blog, but check it.

  7. So Im confused - are you saying they are better with the butter or the Crisco? I need to know - I wanna make these NOW!! YUM!


Thanks so much for taking a moment or two of your time to leave a comment! I love 'em!
