Oh, my gosh, these are so freaking delicious. I tried them out a few weeks ago for my husb, who can eat his weight in cookies. He loved them, and asked for them again this weekend! I bake them (28-29 minutes) in a 9 x 9 pan so they come out nice and THICK, and they are so soft and gooey it makes my mouth water right now thinking about them. The only thing I changed was to cut way back on the butter, as I was worried they'd come out greasy. I used 1/2 cup the first time, and 6 tablespoons the second, and they were still plenty moist and soft. For anyone who loves a chewy, fudgy brownie, these have that same texture, and for anyone who loves cinnamon desserts these have a wallop of cinnamon flavor. A definite new favorite. Thanks.
If you love snickerdoodle cookies, then you will go CrAzY over these! I can't believe how long it took me to actually try this recipe! I thought the cinnamon/sugar mixture was going to be a lot on top (I used it all), but it didn't seem like an excessive amount once they were baked. I found that putting wax paper over the mixture before patting the mixture down in the pan helped a lot, because it was sticky. I also used the wax paper to "press" the cinnamon/sugar into the top a little before sticking them in the oven. I swear I heard the "hahhhh" of a choir singing when I took these out of the oven, and once again when I had one when they were warm-do you think I could've waited for them to cool? ;) Everything about this recipe is pure genius. Thanks!
Super yummy! Wow. Our new favorite bar. My husband said they were perfect. I made them in a pan one size smaller than a 9 by 13 and they were really thick. Just needed extra bake time.
I don't know what all the hoopla is about. I made these yesterday. I am so disappointed. They are very very sweet.... and do they ever really get done? Even by looking at the photos that have been posted, they look doughy. Well... they taste doughy, too. They remind me of just packed brown sugar squares with cinnamon sugar on top.
I'm sorry, but these just did not work for me. As far as I can tell, I followed the recipe exactly, but mine turned out kind of salty and dense. We couldn't eat them. :-( The only variable that I am not certain of is what type of flour was in my canister. It could have been bread flour instead of regular...could that have been the cause?
I really enjoyed these, they were easy, delicious, and made the whole house smell yummy. I did halve the recipe and double the spices. I would recommend that on the cinnamon, not the nutmeg (next time I wo'n't use as much). Thank you for posting!!
Some of the best cookie bars I have ever put in my mouth. Simple ingredients so they must be top notch. I added pecans halves to the top and they were a pretty perfect addition. Great recipe!
Great recipe. Simple to put together, the hardest part is waiting for the pan to cool before cutting! Thank you!
Family loved it. The middle sunk in mine when it came out of the oven but that was perhaps the best bit ;) Nice & gooey.
I've made these twice now and even though my DH loves snickledoodles he is not fond of these; he would rather just have chocolate brownies. I, on the other hand, really enjoy them with a tall glass of milk. Next time, I will cut the recipe in half for a small pan.
