Brown Sugar Snickerdoodle Blondies – Everything you love about snickerdoodles with no fuss.
One of the things I love best about mentoring young women in my congregation at church (I specifically work with 16-18 year old girls these days) is that when we get together for weekly activities, I often have the chance to bring treats. Opportunity to try new recipes + a group of willing taste-testers + not having boatloads of treats at home to eat by myself = best ever. These brown sugar snickerdoodle blondie cookie bars were my latest experiment.
I’ll be honest, I’m usually kind of disappointed in snickerdoodles. They often come out dry or don’t have enough flavor for me. Not these babies. They were everything good about snickerdoodles amplified by the addition of brown sugar, a tender, soft texture, and a delicious cinnamon-sugar topping.
Michael described these as a cross between a snickerdoodle and a coffee cake. I thought that was a pretty apt description. These were soft, and, while definitely still cookie bars, the topping was almost like coffee cake topping (in the very best way).
If you ever doubted it was fall… pop a batch of these babies in your oven and you’ll know for sure. In only a few minutes, your house will smell like cinnamon-y heaven.Print
