Recipe by Vseward (Chef~V)
I've seen this recipe on several food blogs and was obsessed with them. Being a big fan of Snickerdoodle cookies, I knew the moment I saw these I had to give them a whirl. What impressed me most about this recipe was that it was super basic, no need to run out and buy anything special, just raid your fridge and pantry and bake away! These are super easy to make and will have your house smelling heavenly in 10 minutes. These bars go great with a cup of piping hot coffee! Now get obsessed with these bars and get to baking! My hats off to Julia of Dozen Flours who I adapted this from and tweaked to create this new favorite of my family and friends :) Now everyone asks me for the recipe! I have not seen a recipe on Zaar like this, so I am posting it here to share!

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.
- 2 2⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 2 eggs, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease and/or line a 9×13 inch pan. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and set aside.
- In large bowl, beat together butter and brown sugar for 3-5 minutes. Add in the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla, and beat until smooth.
- Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Spread evenly in prepared pan (mixture will be somewhat cookiebatter-ish, so it’s best to spread it out with a greased spatula or your hands -- I just spray a spatula with cooking spray). Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon, in a little bowl. Evenly sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over the top of the batter.
- Bake 25-30 minutes or until surface springs back when gently pressed. Cool before cutting. Makes 20-24 bars.
