Snickerdoodle Bars

by Milisa on August 17, 2011

Snickerdoodle Bars

Everybody loves a classic snickerdoodle and these bars are no exception.  Classic snickerdoodle flavor in a quick and easy bar.  I love bars as opposed to cookies sometimes, because they are so easy, no scooping and baking pan after pan of cookies.  If I bake cookies, I have to stay in the kitchen or I burn them.  I am very easily distracted.  I was thinking the other day, if I had a buzzer that went off every time I got distracted or forgot what I was doing, maybe I could get more accomplished. Of course then I would be rich too, right, if I was an inventor?  Well I reckon I will stick to cooking.  Bars are easy to pack in lunches and for picnics.  Did you know I used to pack lunches for cowboys and farm hands everyday?  I always tried to be creative and have lots of variety.  This was one of my favorites and still is.  By the way, I am hosting a giveaway for my Flour Sack Towels over at In Sock Monkey Slippers, where Meredith whips up some fantastic recipes!  Check out her blog and enter, you could be the winner!

Snickerdoodle Bars


adapted from The New Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Cooking Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixer bowl beat butter and sugar together until fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla and continue to beat until combined.  Add flour and baking soda and combine.

Pour into a greased 8 x 11 1/2-inch baking dish, spreading into an even layer.

Combine 2 tablespoons sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over dough.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted comes out clean.

Cool slightly before cutting into bars.

The only person that doesn’t love a snickerdoodle cookie is a person who has never eaten a snickerdoodle cookie! I love that you made yours into bar cookies. You are a genious! Thanks for sharing, Milisa!

We are snickerdoodle family! Snickerdoodles are a tradition that goes way back in my family (my grandmother’s tradition). Hard to believe I haven’t blogged about them yet.

These are wonderful and easy. I take cookies every Sunday morning for my children’s church. This is the request everytime. I love that I can throw them together in 5 minutes. The kids gobble them up!
