Your favorite cookie, in bar form! These are the kind of dessert/treat you can whip up really quick, you probably have all the ingredients on hand too. Snickerdoodle cookies are popular around this home, but I thought I'd try these when I saw them. From what I could smell and from what I heard, these were really goooooood!
Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars
adapted from Betty Crocker
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Heat oven to 350° F. Spray or grease bottom only of a 13x9-inch baking pan with cooking spray, line with parchment paper (for easy removal).
In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; set aside.
In a large mixer, beat butter on high speed until creamy. Beat in sugars. Gradually beat in eggs and vanilla into sugar mixture until combined. On low speed, beat in dry ingredients until combined.
Spoon half the batter into pan; spread evenly. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over batter.
Dollop teaspoon size amounts of remaining batter evenly over cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
In small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Remove cooled bars from pan using the parchment paper as handles, cut into desired bars (I cut mine into 12). Drizzle glaze over bars, allow to dry a little before serving.
