Snickerdoodle Blondies…

Once in awhile I come across a recipe that I feel compelled to make. It’s like I become obsessed with it and the idea will not exit my brain until the recipe is baked, blogged and eaten! These Snickerdoodle Blondies are one of those recipes…I have seen these suckers popping up on various blogs such as Ingrid’s, 3 B’s, Sydney’s Crepes of Wrath and Julia’s, Dozen Flours . 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 also SUPER easy…honestly like ten minutes and these were in the oven filling my home with the sweet inviting scents of cinnamon and brown sugar! These were just perfection and a delectable companion to a cup of piping hot chai tea! Now get obsessed with these bars and get to baking!

Snickerdoodle Blondies
adapted from Dozen Flours

posted from Crepes of Wrath

2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon grated or ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon 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
a pinch nutmeg

1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Spread evenly in prepared pan (mixture will be somewhat cookiebatterish, so it’s best to spread it out with a greased spatula or your hands). Combine the granulated sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a little bowl. Evenly sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over the top of the batter.
4. Bake 25-30 minutes or until surface springs back when gently pressed. Cool before cutting. Makes 20-24 bars.

    Boy, these snickerdoodle blondies really are everywhere I look lately. Perhaps fate is nudging me to bake them? :)
    They look delicious.

    Oh, two of my favorites combined! Our old neighbor used to make the best snickerdoodles. I hope I told her that often :)


  6. Ingrid — March 12, 2009 at 9:35 am

    Yay, you did it! I’m so glad you liked ’em! But I don’t like you…..your photo’s fantastic and has done them justice! Geesh, I told myself it was because they were brownish that my photo was just so-so. LOL!


  7. Maria — March 12, 2009 at 9:45 am

    Too funny, I made these last night, no joke!! I made some changes, will be posting soon! Yours look great!!!

    Yay! I’m so glad you liked them. Your photo is SO much better than the one I posted two years ago.

    My son needed to follow a recipe for a project in science class and made these by himself over the weekend. I had to tell him what to do from the other room but they came out really good; he even got an A!

    Thanks for taking the time to try these!

    Just made these yesterday for Easter- they were a hit! So good! I linked you here:


  17. emily — November 15, 2009 at 4:27 pm

    I have made these dozens of times now and each time I do they are the absolute hit of the party/dinner/pic nic what have you. I also routinely bake a tray to cut up and keep in my freezer for unexpected company. Every single time, people comment on them. Oh, I also always add a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips but am sure they are perfect without them too. Thanks for the sure fire recipe!!

    I'd hoped to make some snickerdoodles for my husband's co-workers today but found I was out of cream of tartar. Tried this recipe and it's a hit…at least with my hubby & I so far. Can't wait for him to share them with his office tomorrow :-) Thanks for posting this!

    My 16-yr old son made these TWICE after a friend brought something like them into school and he fell in love with them. This blog is the first that comes up in google when you search snickerdoodle blondies. He asked me if I would make them, so here I go. The only question now is chocolate chips or original :0


  20. Ashley — July 1, 2010 at 11:43 am

    I made these for my brothers wedding party. RAVE reviews!!!

    So much quicker than rolling out individual snickerdoodle cookies. Love the recipe.
    Thank you!


  21. Joan — July 9, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    Yum, yum, yum. That’s all I can say! Thanks.


  22. Jodie — July 9, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    I made these for a family get-together and they were quickly gobbled up. Delicious recipe and soon to be a bake sale favorite!


  23. Sarah — October 25, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    These are fantastic – I’ve made them at least five times since I stumbled across your recipe. Just posted about them!


  24. Kelli H — December 5, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    AMAZING! They were devoured! Definitely recommend.


  25. Paradai J. — December 23, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    I made these a while back and I was weary about the nutmeg…but they were absolutely amazing. So moist and soft. I doubled the recipe and they disappeared!


  26. Amanda — February 2, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    I just made these and it was such an easy recipe! And the bars are delicious!


  27. Lauren — April 9, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    These are amazing! I made a half batch in an 8×8″ pan, but left the amounts of cinnamon and nutmeg the same. Absolutely delicious! Thanks for the great recipe.


  28. Karen — October 23, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    Made these just now and they are fantastic. You just can’t have one!
